Half Assini (W/R), May 7, GNA – Government has approved payment of compensations to farmers to be affected by the Domunli Gas Project in the jomoro District of the Western Region.
It was to ease tension between affected farmers and workers at the project site.
Mr Sylvester N. Dattieh, Jomoro District Chief Executive said this at Takinpa near Half Assini on Monday, when he met the enclave farmers of the town.
He said affected farmers would by end of May receive their cheques for compensation, and that it is being processed at the moment.
The DCE said the Ghana National Petroleum Company would soon move to site to commence operation and appealed to the farmers whose property would be affected to cooperate with the company.
He advised the affected farmers to invest their compensation properly for their future and generations yet unborn.
Mr Dattieh said an investment advisory team would soon be at the area to educate the beneficiary farmers on how to invest their compensation and appealed to them to turn up at the programme.
Mr James Botolo, Assemblyman for Takinpa, said the meeting was a follow up on their earlier meeting held on May 1 with authorities concerned.
He appealed to land owners to be fair with their tenants on the compensation to ensure peace and order.
Aggrieved farmers of the enclave had for some time going after workers at the site due to their unpaid compensations.
