    The Chief Executive Officer of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has disclosed that the newly constructed building of the Authority cost GHc65 million.

    Speaking on Accra-based Citi FM, Hassan Tampuli said they are currently conducting an audit of the facility which was constructed by the previous administration to ascertain whether it was value for money.

    “We have written to the Ministry of Energy for approval to engage the services of consultant to do an evaluation of the entire project cost, the acquisition of land and any other thing that is related to it. The cost of the building is GHc65 million. We have not come to the conclusion that there is any wrongdoing. We haven’t done the total assessment and I’m not able to pronounce the structural integrity of the building. We are almost at the tail end of that process.”

    The five-storey building is located at Dzorwulu on the George Bush Highway (next to the office of the Petroleum Commission). It will house all NPA’s operational units.

    The facility was inaugurated in January 2017. It is expected to ensure effective discharge of NPA’s mandate of regulating, overseeing and monitoring the downstream petroleum sector.

    In 2014 the general public criticised the NPA for renting an office in East Legon at $63,000 monthly.

    The Authority at the time justified the amount saying it was “necessary and urgent.”
