 GNPC challenged to prove it has not become slush fund for government

The Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has been challenged by the African Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) to prove that it has not become a slush fund for the government after the Auditor General made financial irregularities against GNPC. 

The 2014 Auditor General's report accused GNPC of advancing US$50 million to the Ministry of Finance in 2013, which was expected to be repaid in three months but it was not paid back.

The report also said GNPC failed to audit its partners in oil operations, a requirement imposed on it by the Petroleum Agreements signed with the partners.

However, ACEP in a press release signed by the Executive Director, Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam said it was worried about such financial irregularities and that it "bordered on our fear that GNPC has become a slush fund for the government."
