Proposed relocation of GNPC not advisable – ACEP


To be begin with,the résidents of Sekondi/Takoradi have for sometime now been agitating for the relocation of GNPC to the Twin city long before even Nana Addo made mention of it.
I'll tell you the genesis of the problem that Dr Ackah seems not to understand.
You see,the reason is that the youth in the Western region are not getting jobs to do on the oilfields.Most of the workforce on the oilfields come from Accra,Kumasi,Sunyani,Tamale and Ho because they were mostly recruited
by officials at the GNPC in Accra.On the contrary,if GNPC is relocated to Takoradi or Sekondi it will give a due advantage to the youth there to get jobs.
Most importantly,Takoradi port is expanding rapidly for gas and oil business.There are many investors who want to build new oil ports in the region which can make Ghana become the oil hub of West Africa.Bringing GNPC to Sek/Takoradi has an economic advantage over Accra because it will open up new commercial activities in the region.Thank you.
