Businessman Dr. Kofi Amoah has expressed worry over the sale of what he called the “Gold Coast” to the whites for a pittance.
His comments come on the back of Sam Jonah’s claims that Ghana has 0% of AngloGold Ashanti.
To Dr. Kofi Amoah it’s about time the youth realize that the country’s collective assets are being whittled away on their blind side by the people they have put in power.
He blames successive governments for this failure to put the country first but rather their personal interest.
He said “A BIG SHAME THAT SUCCESSFUL GOVTS AND PARLIAMENTS OF GHANA HAVE SOLD AWAY THE “GOLD COAST” THAT WAS OUR BIRTH RIGHT Citizens really need to sit up n finally realize that our collective assets are whittled away on our blind side by the very people we elect to be our custodians”.
Businessman Sam Esson Jonah has revealed that the Government of Ghana has zero percent (0%) equity in mining juggernaut AngloGold Ashanti, describing the situation as shameful.
In an interview with GTV monitored by NSEMGH, Sam Jonah, a former President of AngloGold Ashanti and the current Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast(UCC) noted that even though the Government of Ghana has 10% equity in the mines, it sold all its equity in AngloGold Ashanti leaving it with nothing. This he intimidated speaks to the very little local ownership in Ghana’s economy.
Our economy has very little local ownership. So if you take the mines, Government of Ghana has by law 10% in all the mines. But beyond the Government of Ghana, there is no Ghanaian who has 2% of any of the mines in Ghana… Government of Ghana as we speak currently has got zero. It has zero equity interest in AngloGold Ashanti, ” he revealed.
