Ghana’s President Akufo-Addo says his government will come back to engage Parliament on the steps it intends to take on the future of the controversial Agyapa royalty deal.
Recall that last year, 15 Civil Society Organizations in Ghana demanded the immediate suspension of a royalty’s investment deal that will leverage the mineral royalties of the country to finance developmental projects.
However, delivering his State of the Nation (SONA) Tuesday, the President hinted that the controversial deal that failed to see the light of day in the 7th Parliament will be resurrected in the 8th Parliament.
The President also touched on the Country’s COVID-19 fight, developmental projects and creative arts.
