Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah, the Minister-designate for Western Region, has made a clear call on oil and gas companies working in the country to consider establishing their headquarters in the Western region.
The Takoradi MP sensed that establishing these offices will be beneficial to the residents of the oil and gas value chain..
He explained that should this initiative be enforced, it help will grow local businesses in the region and consequently affect the economy of the nation.

In spite of the absence of the headquarters of oil and gas companies in the Region, Mr Darko-Mensah indicated that a number of indigenes of the Western Region have benefited through educational programmes from the oil and gas business and he believes that people still has the capacity to participate.

Let us hope a headquarters is extablished at each region in the country.
