ACEP's Benjamin Boakye talks to WADR

West Africa like many countries in the world is endowed with abundant mineral resources but many of its member states remain underdeveloped and their citizens remain poor.

Benjamin Boakye is the Deputy Executive Director of the Africa Center for Energy Policy (ACEP), Ghana.
