The Wassa East District is on course to become the first to start one of the Akuffo Addo Administration’s flagship policy the One District One Factory in the Western Region.
Should all go as planned the Al Mega Company would – in March – be in the district to open a quarry said to be a joint venture with the assembly and in line with the One district One Factory policy.
The One District One Factory Committee of the Wassa East District Assembly chaired by the District Chief Executive Wilson Arthur will meet Al Mega, which has been granted the One District One Factory license for the district, on Wednesday February 14, 2018 to discuss the scope of work.
After, a proposal will be sent to the Finance and Administration and the Executive Committee of the Assembly for consent and endorsement of the joint venture before actual work commences.
The quarry became possible after the mining company Golden Star – Wassa Mine – consented to the Wassa East District Assembly’s request to crush and haul waste rock for one year from the Akyempim SAK 3 waste dump.
This is also subject to mutual terms which are yet to be agreed upon by the mining company and the assembly.
In a letter signed by the General Manager of the company Shaddrack Adjetey Sowah and sighted by Skyy news in response to the assembly’s permission to crush waste rock, the company has granted consent to the assembly to remove 15, 000 tonnes of waste rocks per month for one year.
