President Mahama asks ECOWAS leaders to prioritize local content in extractive industry

President John Mahama has asked ECOWAS leaders to prioritize local content in the implementation of policies in the extractive industry.

He said the benefits citizens stand to gain from it cannot be over emphasised especially in times of economic downturns which usually have serious impact on African countries.

President Mahama said this in a speech read for him at the first ECOWAS Mining and Petroleum forum and Exhibition in Accra.
