The Executive Secretary of Africa Refiners and Distributors Association (ARDA), Mr. Anibor Kragha says Ghana’s petroleum downstream regulator; the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) is the best regulator in Africa.
According to him, the NPA had put in place a robust regulatory environment which is evident in Ghana’s downstream petroleum sector.
Speaking during a courtesy call on the Chief Executive Officer of the NPA, Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, Mr. Kragha commended the NPA for its committed efforts aimed at sanitizing the downstream industry in Ghana.
“For me, NPA is the premier and best regulatory agency I have seen in the 21st century in terms of technology deployment; and in creating a level playing field for all operators involved in the sector,” Mr Kragha said.
He thanked management of NPA for the continuous support to the association and for extending a helping hand to other regulators and players in the industry across the continent.
Dr. Abdul-Hamid on his part renewed the Authority’s commitment to protecting the industry and consumers. This he said will be done by ensuring that the right initiatives are implemented for the good of the sector and the country.
He was hopeful that the industry’s best years are ahead and reiterated his commitment and that of his staff, to running an efficient and results-oriented downstream industry for the mutual benefit of all.
