However, Exton Cubic says Amewu's decision to revoke their license was unreasonable, unjust, and an abuse of his powers.

In an application for review at the High Court, the company is seeking, among others, that the Minister “acted ultra vires [beyond] his statutory powers when he revoked Exton Cubic Group Limited mining leases.”

The company with links to Ibrahim Mahama, the brother of former President John Mahama, argued in it application that revoking of its license was “breach of the rules of natural Justice, and in breach of the company’s rights to administrative justice and property.”

Also, the company is asking the court to quash the Minister's decision to revoke its mining leases and an order of injunction restricting "the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources or his agents from interfering with Exton Cubic’s rights acquired.”

Exton Cubic further wants to protect its rights to the concession, seeking an order of injunction preventing the Ministry “from granting the rights acquired by Exton Cubic Group to any other person.”
