The Deputy Attorney General, Mr. Godfred Odame has said the CEO of Exton Cubic, Ibrahim Mahama is far from being off the hook.

He said the government will still pursue the case of the legality or otherwise of the mining permit that was granted to Exton Cubic to mine bauxite in the Ashanti Region.

Mr. Dame told Citi FM that: “These are matters of monumental importance. We have to even look at the processes, [asking] how come just a week before the handover of power by a real government, the President of the day, through the Ministers will convey a mining lease to a company owned by [the president’s] brother. These are things we have to look at.”

The High Court contended that the Minister exceeded his powers in revoking the license of Exton Cubic.

The Deputy Attorney General also said, “We don’t rush. We will take our time to do things. We will probe into how these infractions were committed and committed in favor of the company owned by the brother of the then-President [Mahama] granting about 79 percent of the nation’s known bauxite resources in the company’s favor.”

Exton Cubic was granted a license to mine bauxite in the Tano-Offin forest reserve by the erstwhile NDC administration just a few weeks before they exited office.

However, the license was suspended by the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources citing some infractions of the law.
