Exton Cubic Group Limited, the company linked to the brother of former president John Dramani Mahama, has stated that the will go to court to overturn government revocation of their mining license.
Earlier YEN.com.gh had reported that the company's license to explore at the Tano Offin Forest reserve had been revoked.
The Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Peter Amewu, had explained that the directive was issued because the company’s three mining leases were invalid.
However, a sect of Ghanaians have stated that the current problems faced by Exton Cubic are part of a witch hunt of Ibrahim Mahama, they are linked to.
However, speaking to the Accra-based radio station, CITI FM, Public Relations Officer of Exton Cubic, Sammy Gyamfi revealed that they would take up the issue in court.
He revealed that the company's lawyers were studying the claims by Peter Amewu and would take the necessary actions.
“We will take the appropriate legal steps to seek redress… These are technical and legal issues which our lawyers will go through,” he stated.
Gyamfi also stated that the claims of government in the revocation of their licenses are all false.
The mining company, which was granted a license on December 29, 2016, insists it followed due process in the acquisition of the mining license despite claims by the EPA and Mineral’s Commission that it was in breach of the law.
