"We Are Dying Of Dust; Nana Addo Must Come And Save Us" - Western Region Residents

Many believe Chinese firms in Ghana must be put under strict scrutiny by Ghanaian officialdom. This discussion has been on for a sometime now. And today, another of such companies is under the radar again.

Residents of Essikadu, Western Region, have made a strong appeal to the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo to intervene in their present condition or they risk dying. 

According to the residents, the operation of a Chinese cement manufacturing Company in the area creates so much pollution that if care is not taken, in the not too distant future, several of them will die from the dust pollution caused by this company

They have alleged that the dust enter their rooms, cashing serious damage to their buildings, and more importantly their health. 

One resident, who gave his name only as Christian, told DAWURO that the activities of this Chinese company is hazardous to human life, adding that Authorities must act quicker to avert any possible negative repercussion. 

"Their activities are very hazardous to human health, but we won't see that now. There is dust all over. And their earlier State authorities will act, the better," he told us

But there was a shocking bit to the whole drama. 

According to Chris, when he once confronted them about their activities, it came to light that they did not even know what a critical prerequisite for their operation - Material Safety Data sheet (MSDS) - was. 

"I once confronted them and demanded to see their MSDS certificate. Shockingly, they didn't even knw what MDSS was," he said shockingly. 

Egya Anthony, a resident of the area, who has been living here for the past fifteen (15) years alleges that the Chinese are trying to 'buy' some residents in order to shut them up. 

"I heard the Chinese shared rice and Keiser drinks last night to some residents here," he said. 

They pleaded with the President to step in and free them from the bondage
