President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says the Committee set up to investigate the contaminated fuel saga at the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited, BOST, will continue its work in spite of the Bureau of National Investigation, BNI and the National Petroleum Agency’s NPA’s report, clearing the Managing Director.
Speaking at a media encounter in Accra, President Akufo-Addo said the Committee set up will ensure that the era of contaminated and off-spec products are addressed.
It may be recalled that The Energy Ministry has announced reforms in the petroleum sector to deal with the discharge and sale of contaminated products.
The Bulk Oil Storage and Transport Company Limited (BOST)) came under public criticism for selling five million litres of contaminated fuel to Movenpiina Company Limited, a company said to have been incorporated barely a month after it negotiated the deal and without a license the regulator, the National Petroleum Authority.
The public attacks compelled government to institute a probe into the transaction, however, the joint investigation by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) and National Security found nothing wrong with BOST’s decision to sell the contaminated fuel to Movenpiina.
