Pursue courses to meet industrial demand – Energy Minister
The Energy and Petroleum Resources Minister, Mr. Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah has advised residents in Western Region, especially those in the Ellembelle enclave, to pursue relevant courses to meet industrial demand of the area.
He said government was prepared to absorb only the required manpower to render services at the Atuabo gas project site.
Mr. Buah said though government upheld the local content policy, it could not employ locals when they did not possess the requisite qualification and the wherewithal.
The Minister, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP), for Ellembelle, laid the facts bare when he met with National Democratic Congress (NDC) zonal executives at Nkroful.
Mr. Buah reiterated that the NDC government remained sensitive and committed to the plight of Ghanaians and would continue to address their concerns through the creation of employment avenues.
He asked the people to rally behind the government as pragmatic steps were being taken to create the enabling environment and improve their living conditions.
