​The Township Development Chairman said the decision to ship in the absence of adhering to the MOU is counterproductive and against the interest of the people.
Mr. Robert intimated that as long as they are representing the people, it is their prerogative to speak for the people and push the interest of the people of Murrayville, Sinoe and the Nation at large.
He told newsmen that as long as the Euro Logging Company cannot do what was signed between they and the people, there is no way that they can start working or shipment in the area.

He is at the same time calling on the Local Authority and National Government to speedily respond to the concern raised by the people of Murrayville Township.
