Plans by some Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to scuttle the proposed oil agreement between the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and Aker Energy have been exposed by audio files in possession of the Daily Statesman.
The CSOs, in a Zoom meeting, chaired by the Co-ordinator of the Third World Network (TWN) Africa, Dr Yao Graham, put in place deliberate strategies to create a sense of fear and panic within the population over “climate change concerns”, as they spearhead an agenda to prevent Ghana from achieving its long-standing ambition of putting Ghanaians in charge of oil and gas resources.
For the CSOs who are determined to promote the interest of their foreign pay masters, instead of the national interest, Ghana should leave her oil resources on the sea bed and rather borrow to promote the climate change agenda of their pay masters.
The transaction will ensure that GNPC Explorco receives US$5 billion dollars in cash flow, with Ghana being the recipient of some US$18 billion in revenue, thereby having control over its oil resources and destiny. It has therefore become mind-boggling to many Ghanaians as to why some CSOs will scheme to have this all-important transaction scuttled.
Strategies discussed at the Zoom meeting, which had leaders of the various CSOs in attendance, include hijacking both social and traditional media, investing resources, silencing dissenting CSOs, among others.
