“We have decided to suspend the decision we planned to embark on today. We were involved in a meeting with the Minister of Lands on Thursday and he has promised to take us to the site to demarcate a sizeable portion of the land for us to install our equipment because that is the immediate need," Amoah told Citi FM.
