Ada residents protest over salt-mining lease granted to Electrochem Ghana


Summary short_text

Some indigenes of the Terkpebiawe Clan of Ada within the Greater Accra Region who claim to be the custodial owners of the Songor lagoon on Wednesday, January 27, 2021, embarked on a demonstration exercise to protest against the mining lease granted to Electrochem Ghana Limited to mine salt in the area.
Speaking to Citi News, one of the residents stated that "The three mining leases granted to the company is not in our best interest especially as far as our livelihood and our settlement is concerned. What we are saying is that the licences are basically giving the company monopoly over the entire Songor lagoon depriving the larger populace of their livelihood. This technically means none of the Ada residents can mine or win salt in that lagoon."
Electrochem Ghana limited, is a subsidiary of the Mcdan Group, commenced operations on the Ada Songor salt project site after a special commissioning ceremony was performed in December 2020.
