The discovery of oil and gas in commercial quantities in Ghana has given the nation a hope that a great deal of the prevailing depressive economic hardships would be greatly mitigated. This can only materialise when the wealth from the natural resources such as oil and gas is well managed in promoting a well sustained economic development.
