Meanwhile, for the youth to get lands to do proper community mining has become another issue of discussion in Akyem Nsutam community and its enclave.
It is alleged that Kibi Goldfields has claimed most of the mining lands in the Fanteakwa South District that belongs to Akyem Nsutam Nsuapemso community to indian miners.
For proper community mining to take place, angry Youth of Akyem Nsutam in the Fanteakwa South District in the Eastern Region has given Kibi Goldfields 3 days ultimatum to release portion of land for them to engage in community mining.
According to the Assembly Member for Nsutam Nsuapemso Electoral Area, Hon. Alexander Boakye, the youth would have wished to take part in the president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's community mining program which has replaced the then Galamsey.
Speaking in a press conference today at the community's durbar ground, Hon. Alexander Boakye added that numerous attempts by him and other authorities in the District to engage Kibi Goldfields to sublet portions of their concessions for the teeming unemployed youth have proofed futile.
"however, the high unemployment rate in the community has increased my burden as the youth troop to his resident in search for job each day", he cried out.
The irate youth have promised to block the roots to the mining company's site should Kibi Goldfields fail to release some portions of their lands for them. Hence they have threatened to invade the territory of Kibi Goldfields with demonstration after the 3 days ultimatum.
Hon. Alexander Boakye is therefore appealing to the Government of Ghana led by H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and authorities to come to their aid as the rise of unemployment is unbearable among the youth and the entire Akyem Nsutam community.
