-A member of the communications team of NDC has alleged that the daughter of Akufo-Addo is involved in the BOST saga
-He attributed his claims to the silence of the President on the matter
-The BOST saga has been in media circles for a while and the President is yet to comment on the matter
A member of opposition party NDC has alleged that one of the daughters of President Akuffo-Addo has something to do with the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) saga which involves the selling of contaminated fuel to some companies.
He based his claims on rumors he was hearing.
The communications member of the opposition party alleged that it was quite surprising for the president to be silent on such a huge matter as this when he was one of the crusaders of fighting corruption in the country.
He said that the mess at BOST was too enormous for the president not to step into the matter. He also alleged that the president silence was a way of not implicating his daughter, Edwina Akufo-Addo who he believed was neck-deep in the BOST controversy.
He stressed the fact that the president’s daughter was in a way involved in the messy oil deal that was why the matter was dealt with in a hurry. He however indicated that the issue could not be treated lightly and wanted a thorough investigation to be launched into the matter and to ensure that all parties involved in the matter be brought to book.
He added that there could be some iota of truth in his claim judging by how the The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) cleared the MD of any wrongdoing as well so as to cover up any other people who might be involved in the mess at BOST.
The sale of some 5 million litres of contaminated fuel at BOST has been a topic of national discussion in recent times with pressure being mounted on the Managing Director of BOST, Alfred Obeng to resign to save his face after the exposé.
The report of the BNI on the matter has been rejected by Civil Society Organisations (CSO), Occupy Ghana and IMANI which have both called on the President to institute fresh probe into the matter. Some members of the opposition NDC have also called on the President to look into the matter again.
Sammy Gyamfi, the NDC communicator alleged that the President’s silence may link his ‘partial involvement’ in the controversial saga.
