Nzema Youth Rise Up Against Detractors of Adamus Resources

Nzema youth from the Ellembelle District of the Western Region, have staged a peaceful demonstration, marching through key streets of Nzema communities in support of Adamus Resources and its Chief Executive Officer, Angela List.

Participants from various communities within the mine’s operational area, asserted that the company, has significantly contributed to local development.

They called for an end to the criticism directed at the company and Ms. List, emphasizing that the collective interests of the local people and stakeholders far outweigh the personal agenda of a few detractors.

The march which began at the Ellembelle District Assembly in Nkroful, passed through Sekyim Palace and River Brome Street, and concluded at the main entrance of Adamus Resources.

Demonstrators carried placards with messages such as “Leave Angela List Alone,” “Adamus’s success is largely due to Angela List’s exceptional leadership,” and “We appreciate Madam Angela for prioritizing the employment of Nzema youth in Adamus.”

Speaking to journalists, Mr Francis Kwaw Mensah, the Assemblyman for Nkroful electoral area and leader of the protest, highlighted the importance of maintaining a peaceful environment for the sustained success of Adamus Resources.

He stated, “Adamus Resources needs a peaceful environment to sustain its fortunes and future operations.

Madam List, should be allowed to continue her work to promote the growth of the company, which will also benefit us.”

Mr Mensah noted that, 67 percent of Adamus’s staff are Nzemas, thanks to Ms. List’s leadership, which has also facilitated numerous community development and Corporate Social Responsibility programmes in the areas of  education, health, and private sector growth.

He cited several initiatives under Ms. List’s leadership, including the renovation of Nkroful Senior Secondary School at a cost of GH₵200,000, the construction of a 12-unit classroom block for Teleku Bokazo Primary School, and the provision of National Insurance Scheme registration for community members.

Mr Mensah, concluded by praising Ms. List’s dedication to the Nzema people and her efforts to ensure continuous development in Ellembelle.

“Madam List is a leader with exceptional qualities, and she should be allowed to continue her good work for the benefit of our communities.”

In terms of women empowerment, Ms. List, has been instrumental in training 120 young women in detergent production, fostering creativity and private sector growth.

Additionally, she has overseen the employment of Nzema women as drivers for Liebeherr trucks, significantly boosting local employment with 700 out of over 1000 workers hailing from Nzema.

Mr John Kwame Ellierkeh, Chairman of the Junior Staff Union, echoed these sentiments, stating that employees are eager for a conducive working environment that promotes productivity and benefits all stakeholders, including the Nzema communities.
