Define The Proper Location of The Oil Find-Ghana Oil and The Deprived People of the Nzemaland

Accra, GNA – The three Members of Parliament from Nzema area on Tuesday asked for a proper geographical definition of the location of the oil find announced recently to avoid future misunderstanding and conflict.

They suggested that the anomaly should be immediately rectified and the name of the location of the find equally publicized to give Nzema its proper recognition regarding the oil find.

A statement signed by the MPs, Mr Freddie Blay (CPP-Ellembele), Mr Kojo Armah (CPP-Evalue Gwira) and Mr Lee Ocran (NDC-Jomoro) said it was recently reported that Ghana had discovered oil at two places.

The first oil find by Consmos Energy was said to be at Cape Three Points while the second discovery by Tullow Oil plc was in the Deep Water Tano Basin.

The MPs said the announcement failed to mention that the two oil finds or discoveries were in the Tano Basin located in the territorial waters of the Nzema area.

They said the Tano Basin was divided into three geological blocks – Shallow Water Tano, Deep Water Tano and West Cape Three Points – all located in the Nzema area.

The MPs further explained that the Tano Basin was 65 kilometres off Half-Assini, about 80 kilometres off Axim and over 100 kilometres South-Westward away from Cape Three Points, all into the sea.

“…there is no doubt that the oil find is closer to Half-Assini, Beyin, Esiama and Axim and farther away from Cape Three Points.

“While we recognize that Cape Three Points is also in the Western Region, we believe it would be better appreciated if the location of the oil find could be properly defined within the geographical context to avoid future misunderstanding and conflict.”

25 June 2008 Half-Assini

THE National Association of Nzema Students (NANS) has waded into the raging argument, over the exact location of oil, which has been discovered in the Western Region.

At a forum, organized last week, on the theme: ‘The specific location of the oil find in the Western Region and the way Forward,’ the students argued, with of documents, that the oil find was not located on the soil of Cape Three Points, as was being alleged.

Nzema Youth Association Wishes Ghanaian Farmers A HAPPY FARMERS DAY !

On the Occasion of the 27th National Farmers Day Celebrations, the Executives and the General Membership of the Nzema Youth Association join hands with all Ghanaians to congratulate our wonderful farmers and fishermen/women during the celebration of this important day.

We wish to express our sincere gratitude and warmest concerns for the critical roles being played by our hard working farmers and fishermen/women to ensure food security in our motherland.

We are aware that agriculture is the backbone of the Ghanaian economy. The sector contributes 35% of GDP and provides employment for over 60% of our population.

The Nzema Youth Association under the able leadership of Awulea, President Kingsley Blay Ackah fully appreciates the special role of farmers and fishermen, especially women as the main producers, processors and marketing of fish and food even though they have limited access to resources such as land , water, credit, inputs and training.

It is in this regard that the Nzema Youth Association has committed itself to appealing to Goverment to help uplift and modernize agriculture to enhance food security and reduce income variability for farmers and fishermen/women in the country under better working conditions and modernized agricultural practices.

The Nzema Youth Association calls upon the government to be more committed to pursuing large scale introduction of appropriate agricultural modernisation implements such as tractors, power tillers, cultivators and intermediate means of transport in order to reduce dependence on the use of old and rudimentary tools such as hoe and cutlass as the main implement of agricultural production in the country.
The Nzema Youth Association calls upon our governement to be more serious to assisting farmers and fishermen/women by providing the necessary infrastructure to support agricultural modernisation process through the provision of improved access roads, dams, boreholes and harvesting techniques to enable Ghanaian farmers reach their full potentials especially the most vulnerable farmers in the Western Region of Ghana who have been neglected for long .

The Nzema Youth Association wish to express gratitude and pledges to support the government’s programmes in seeking to enhance the social and economic well being of all our hard working farmers and fishermen in our region and the nation as a whole.

We wish you all a very Happy Farmers Day !
YƐ ma bƐ Ayekoooooo !!!!!
