Speaking in an interview with GhanaWeb’s Amos Ekow Coffie, Dr Sulemana said the government must step in to help integrate the two companies to come to an amicable understanding since the international community is monitoring the ongoing situation. “Bear in mind that we have other players who are closely monitoring and government should try and be a referee in this case. His calls come on the back of the failure of ENI and Springfield exploration and production; to unitize the Afina and Sankofa field belonging to both companies. ENI said it has more stake in the exploration field than Springfield and that is one of the major causes of the delay in the unitization process. Dr Sulemana said the situation is delicate but a proper approach can be adopted to solve it.

So I believe the Bank of Ghana lawyers were only stating the fact of the law not to appear before parliament.

It is not in the middle of the court issue that one is required by the Bank of England to respond to an invitation.
