On Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, it was revealed that, Pilot and two others, Sarcon Quarry Limited and Executive Mining Quarry have not paid taxes since they started operations.
The Gomoa East District Assembly has secured an injunction barring them from operating until they pay their monies.
