Speaking on "Badwam" on Adom TV on Tuesday, Agyapong said Obeng had committed no crime and that many members of the party who wanted him out were ignorant of his contribution to the party.

Agyapong said Obeng contributed GHc700,000 to the 2016 campaign of then candidate Nana Akufo-Addo.

He said Obeng was introduced to him by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) national youth organiser, Sammy Awuku.

According to Agyapong, Obeng initially offered to contribute one million cedis to the campaign, but was told to hold on.

He said Obeng first gave him GHc200,000 and later added GHc500,000 in October 2016.

"As soon as I received the money, I called Ken Ofori-Atta who was in charge of the mobilisation of funds to inform him... Today, he [Obeng] is the boss at BOST and people are complaining... They are criticizing the guy without knowing his contribution,” he said.

Obeng has been accused of selling five million litres of contaminated fuel to two unlicensed companies.

But a BNI investigation into his conduct absolved him of blame.
