Government has asked the Chief Executive Officer of the Minerals Commission, Dr. Toni Aubynn to proceed on leave.

Dr. Aubynn communicated the news to the staff and management at meeting held on Monday morning.

He explained that the decision takes effect the same day.

The Minerals Commission is a key state organ in regulating the mining industry.

Reports say the news of his departure came as a surprise to the staff although managerial changes at government institutions are a common occurrence whenever there is a transfer of political power.

A member of management on behalf of the staff thanked Dr. Aubynn for his time at the commission spanning three years.

Dr. Aubynn was appointed in April 2014 by the erstwhile John Mahama administration.
