Certification of refined gold and its benefits

In the light of the nation’s commitment to ensure that Ghana is gradually turned into an industrial hub and appropriately transformed for economic development in West Africa and the world as a whole, efforts to ensure the certification of refined gold and other minerals are necessary to add value to the precious metal before export to other countries for revenue.

When the report about the three, now four, missing girls in Takoradi came out, painful as it was and it is now, it was politicised to create the impression that the security apparatus in the country was not working as expected.
