President Akufo-Addo has made a firm commitment to ensure a peaceful resolution of the Eni Ghana and Springfield dispute.
Speaking at the maiden edition of the “Ellembelle Business Expo” organised under the theme “Harnessing Our Investment Opportunities for a Sustainable Job Creation in Ellembelle” as the Special Guest of Honour, His Excellency, Nana Akufo Addo noted, “I have had two separate meetings with the key figures involved from our side and on the side of Eni to try and find a common ground that will enable us to deal with this matter without litigation. It hasn’t happened so far, but I want to assure you that we will continue to discuss it to find an amicable solution.”
He further noted that this request that has been made by the Nzema-Manle Council sits well with him and he is willing to do his best to make sure that it happens.
The President’s comments and commitment came as a result of an appeal made earlier by Awulae Amihere Kpanyinli lIl, Paramount Chief and President of the East Nzema Traditional Council, in an address at the Business Expo. The Awulae appealed to the President to intervene to help resolve the dispute between ENI Ghana and Springfield amicably.
