The Minority in Parliament has called for an immediate investigation into the tenure of the dismissed Chief Executive of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST).

Alfred Obeng Boateng was fired by the President last Wednesday (June 6, 2018). No reason was given for his dismissal.

However, it is thought that the many controversies that occurred during his term of office at BOST could be the reason for his dismissal.

During his tenure, there were allegations of the sale of contaminated fuel which led to the country losing some GHs 7 million and the sale of fuel at considerable discounts to private companies in deals that smacks of corruption.

The Minority Spokesperson on Mines and Energy, Adam Mutawakilu told Accra-based Citi FM that “his dismissal should open a new page for investigations into the 5 million liters contaminated fuel, the two parcels of crude that were discounted at $2 each [instead of $5].”


Mr Obeng Boateng was not the only Chief Executive of a state agency who was fired by the President on Wednesday.
