He said on Citi FM's "The Big Isue": “Somebody must have been engaged in this whole fuel fraud and somehow it needed to be offloaded.

"And a company has been set up not properly incorporated and we have decided to reduce that value of whatever has been contaminated deliberately, I don’t think it was a mistake.

"This fuel fraud is an organized crime. It is not just in Ghana…Don’t ever think these things are done by mistake."

On Friday, New Patriotic Party MPs backed calls for a full scaled investigation into the matter but suggested th investigation should start from 2009.
