The youth in Ayanfuri and surrounding communities are up in arms with Perseus Mining Company for reneging on its promise of giving them jobs in the company.
The youth, Kasapafmonline.com understands, have started series of protests against the mining company to press home their demands.
Assemblyman for Nkonya Electoral Area and Spokesperson for the youth, John Kwame Boakye says the action of the youth is as a result of the company’s Human Resource Manager’s blatant disregard of an agreement the communities have with the company.
“There is an existing agreement between the Chiefs and people of Ayanfuri and surrounding communities and the mining company but they are not implementing it. They keep on recruiting people from outside the community to undertake some giving jobs our people are capable of doing. We are not saying the company should engage our people in positions they are not capable to handle.
But at least, those areas they discussed with us, they should implement it”, he passionately appealed to the company.
