Ghana Gas consoles T’di girls’ families

The Ghana National Gas Company has assured the families of the three kidnapped girls in Takoradi of government's commitment to ensuring that they reunite with their daughters.

Giving the assurance during a visit to the homes of the three girls at Diabene and Kansawrodo in the Essikado Constituency in the Western Region, the Head of Corporate Communication at Ghana Gas, Mr Ernest Owusu Bempah, assured the families of the company’s utmost concern.

"I want you to know that as a company, one of our objectives is to build a good relationship with the residents in and around our area of operation, and we are worried about these kidnappings," Mr Bempah said.

Mr Bempah, who was in the company of the Senior Manager in charge of Community Relations and Corporate Social Responsibility, Mr Francis Ewoniah and other members of the Atuabo-based gas processing company, further stated that kidnappings are alien to the Ghanaian community and that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is committed to resourcing the security agencies to make sure the girls are found as a matter of urgency.

"The entire presidency, our CEO and all well-meaning Ghanaians are worried about the situation and it is our utmost prayer that the next time we will come here will be the day the girls have returned,” he added.

The three girls, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, Ruthlove Quayeson and Priscilla Mantsebeah Koranchie, were kidnapped between August and December 2018.

Mr Ewoniah, on behalf of the company, presented an undisclosed amount of money to the families at their separate homes.

The families urged the company to inform the President about the inconsistent nature of information flow from, especially the police and expressed worry about the manner the case is being handled.
