- The NPP secretary has lambasted the NDC for their fierce criticisms against the ruling government over the BOST saga
- He says the NDC will soon die out hence, their futile attempt to damage the NPP's reputation
Nana Obiri Boahen, the deputy general secretary of the New Patriotic Party has thrown jabs at the National Democratic Congress, over their reactions to the contaminated fuel saga.
According to the NPP secretary, the opposition NDC is using the issue to damage the reputation of the Akufo-Addo administration, a feat he says will end in futility.
He said the NPP would not kowtow to the criticisms by the NDC and its members over the scandal surrounding the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport.
Mr. Obiri Boahen noted that the NDC was on 'life support' since they have nothing more to hold on to, hence their attempt at making various 'irrelevant and useless' arguments about the saga.
"Kofi Adams and his NDC cohorts should give us a break and allow the laws of the country to work. The man has been cleared by the BNI and what I expect from the NDC is to shut up because they even benefited a lot from BOST when in power," he said on NEAT FM on Wednesday.
Mr. Obiri Boahen's comments come in the wake of the declaration by the relevant state security agencies, who cleared the managing director of BOST for an malpractice.
Mr. Alfred Obeng Boateng and BOST had been accused of selling about 5 million litres of contaminated fuel on behalf of BOST to a number of unlicensed oil companies, including Movenpiina Energy and Zup Oil.
Reports indicated the off-spec product would have caused the state about GHC 7 million in revenue.
The Minority have demanded an explanation as to the factors that influenced the BNI and National Security to cease the investigations into Mr. Obeng Boateng.
They alleged that this development is just a cover-up by the government to hide the truth behind the contaminated fuel incident.
The Minority also pledged to probe deeper into the issue until they reveal the actual details behind the incident.
