NACSUL Wants New Bea Mountain Concession Passed

 

The National Civil Society Union of Liberia (NCSUL) has welcomed the signing into law of the Mineral Development Agreement of Bea Mountain Mining Company, a multinational concessionaire operating in Grand Cape Mount County, Western Liberia.

In a press statement issued in Monrovia on August 31, 2023, the civil rights organization commended Bea Mountain Mining Company for ensuring that its new agreement was taken to the people of Grand Cape Mount County for their inputs which was successfully done and the citizens understood and accepted amendments to the previous contract which they now say is in their interest

Grand Cape Mount County has witnessed numbers of uneasiness from some citizens raising issues of discontent but persistent efforts from national government and actors in the mineral sector have brought calm, thus culminating into the Legislature renewing the company’s concession for another 25 years.

The National Civil Society Union of Liberia said the previous 25 years MDA of Bea Mountain proved that Bea Mountain provided to the people of Grand Cape Mount County construction of a hospital, school to enhance government’s efforts of educating its citizens, founding and supporting a football club as well as the building of roads linking surrounding towns and villages to the company’s operational facilities. Housing units have also been constructed by Bea Mountain whilst implementing its first concession agreement in Grand Cape Mount.

The National Civil Society Union says it is particularly concerned about and welcomes increments in the county development fund to one million United States Dollars,

Also, the other aspect of the new MDA is allotment of 50% of all senior management position as well as total amount of funds to the community and county, in excess of US$1 million.

More to that, the agreement extension helps to ensure the 4,000 existing jobs provided to citizens. The new amendment also recognizes the rights of communities enshrined in the Land Rights Act of 2018.

Additionally, it Increases in land rental from US$2.9 to US$4.0 with 50% to the benefit of the local communities.

Amos B.S. Kanneh, President of the National Civil Society Union of Liberia called on lawmakers, especially from Western Liberia to take the lead in ensuring that the MDA is ratified.

According to Kanneh, under the new Bea Mountain concession agreement, the ten percent undiluted finds will automatically grant citizens of Grand Cape Mount, shareholders right within the operational franchise of Bea Mountain, while the local content will be given to citizens of Grand Cape Mount. And, as per the Memorandum of Understanding, the Government of Liberia shall only be witness to Bea Mountain paying the money into the citizens’ account.

The new agreement states that the company intends to make an additional investment of five hundred twenty million United States dollars. However, to proceed with this investment, they require an amended contract due to the three years remaining on the existing Mineral Development Agreement.

Moreover, the new agreement outlines NACSUL said, it observed and followed a public hearing at the Liberian Senate that brought together key figures, including Minister of Justice Frank Musa-Dan, Finance and Development Planning Minister Samuel Tweah, Labor Minister Charles Gibson, Mines and Energy Minister Gersler Murray, and the Chairman of the National Investment Commission, Molewuleh Gray, to provide reason why the Senate should either approve or amend the concession agreement.

Meanwhile, the National Civil Society Union is calling for total cessation and persistent protest actions that have been carried out by some individuals against the operational activities of Bea Mountain Mining Company which is the largest concessionaire in Grand Cape Mount County in postwar Liberia.

The organization believes that such acts have the proclivity to scare away investors and when such happens, it creates scarcity of jobs and undermines development.

Mr. Kanneh said in the release that with the new amended agreement, he wants dialogue to take preeminence over violent actions that distract government’s obligation to deliver on national development.

The Civil Society group is at the same time, commending the Liberian Senate for passing into law the new Bea Mountain Concession and expressed hope that the House of Representatives will concur in enacting the instrument into law for signing into law by the President.

National Civil Society Union of Liberia said, it particularly commends the high level of leadership exhibited by Senator Albert Tugbeh Chie, President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate whose insightfulness ensured that the company renewed concession met all terms and conditions as requested by Cape Mountaineers. Now that the Senate has done its due diligence, the National Civil Society Union of Liberia is hoping that House Speaker, Dr. Bhogal Chambers sees reason to rally with his colleagues in generating the requisite number to ensure concurrence with the Senate.

The Civil Society group says it sees the passage into law of the new Bea Mountain concession as a major job creation opportunity for Liberians hailing from the western region of the country which it believes will ease the burden on government.

In conclusion, Amos B.S Kanneh, President of the National Civil Society Union of Liberia called on Bea Mountain to do all it can to live up to every aspect of the renewed concession deal as well as the Memorandum of Understanding between the company and the locals.

    It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you few interesting things or tips. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I want to read more things about it!

  132. I would also like to mention that most individuals that find themselves devoid of health insurance are normally students, self-employed and those that are out of work. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of 35. They do not sense they are wanting health insurance because they’re young in addition to healthy. Its income is typically spent on houses, food, and entertainment. Many people that do represent the working class either complete or not professional are not supplied insurance through their jobs so they go without due to the rising valuation on health insurance in the usa. Thanks for the concepts you share through this web site.

    One thing I would like to say is the fact that before buying more personal computer memory, consider the machine in to which it could well be installed. When the machine is running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory ceiling is 3.25GB. The installation of above this would just constitute any waste. Be sure that one’s mother board can handle an upgrade amount, as well. Interesting blog post.

  136. Definitely consider that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the internet the simplest thing to take note of. I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as folks think about concerns that they plainly don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
