- The PNC chairman alleged that he received calls from NPP and NDC members to back the BOST MD, Alfred Obeng Boateng
- He claimed however, that he declined these offers for the sake of the nation's interest
Bernard Mornah, the Chairman of the People's National Convention has alleged that he has received 'offers' from both the ruling New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress.
According to the PNC chairman, these offers are to persuade him to offer his support to the embattled director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport institution, Alfred Obeng Boateng.
According to an Adom FM report, the Chairman claimed when the BOST saga begun, he had received calls from members of both political parties to defend the director, but he declined these offers for sake of the state.
Though he failed to offer any specific details, Mr. Mornah said he believed the scandal currently surrounding BOST requires national attention, hence should not be politicized or left to individuals or organizations to deal with.
His comments come in the wake of the scandal that hit the institution, where it was reported that over 5 million litres of contaminated fuel was sold to Movenpiina Energy.
The off-spec product, is alleged to have resulted from an accidental discharge of gasoline into a diesel storage tank which already contained some diesel sometime in January 2017.
Additional reports emerging indicate over 2 million litres of contaminated fuel have been sold to another unlicensed firm by Movenpiina Energy, the company at the center of the BOST saga.
According to Starr FM's report, the transaction was conducted two weeks before Movenpiina Energy sold its consignment to Zupoil.
According to their reports, Mr. Obeng Boateng could not be held responsible for the incident of the contaminated fuel, as he assumed office on January 23, 2017 while the transaction involving the fuel was conducted on January 18.
