AGA DONATES TO OBUASI MUNICIPAL ASSEMBLY

Driven by its core value to ensure an improvement in the lives of Communities in which it operates, Anglo Gold Ashanti, Obuasi Mine on Friday, 13th October, 2017 donated a used pay Loader Truck and an IVECO Bitumen Truck estimated at about USD$ 200.000.00 to the Obuasi Municipal Assembly.
Receiving the items on behalf of the good people of Obuasi, the Municipal Chief Executive, Honorable Elijah Adansi Bonnah commended the management of Anglo Gold Ashanti for the donation. He said the donation was borne out of a fruitful interaction he had with the General Manager and Managing Director of Anglo Gold Ashanti Ghana, Mr. Eric Asubonteng and his management team immediately after he assumed Office as the MCE. He promised AGA of the Assembly’s unflinching support at all times and especially as they are getting to restart the mine.
On the benefits of the two trucks to the Municipality, the rather affable politician said the trucks would help in filling potholes and other road maintenance works as well as to handle waste materials at the Municipal’s rubbish dump site.
Nana Ampofo Bekoe, the Sustainability Manager of Anglo Gold Ashanti who led the team from AGA to do the presentation, said the company was motivated by one of their operational values which is to ensure that there is an improvement in the standard of living of the people in the communities where AGA operates.
He also revealed that though the mining company had the option of getting some funds through auctioning of those trucks, they considered the needs of the Municipality as paramount. He expressed hope that the two trucks would go a long way to assist in the development of the Municipality.
The donation of the two trucks to the Assembly forms part of series of donations by Anglogold Ashanti to key institutions in the Municipality including Ghana Police Service and the Municipal Education Directorate.
