No payment has been made for contaminated “BOST fuel”.

That is according to the largest opposition party National Democratic Congress (NDC) which said the fuel in question was sold to Movenpina.

It would be recalled that on 18th January 2017, 5 million litres of fuel was contaminated at the premises of the state-owned Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST).

The contamination was as a result of a mixture of diesel and petrol with the contaminated product being sold to “unlicensed” Movenpina and Zup Oil.

Addressing the first edition of the “Corruption Tracker Series”, National Communications Officer of the NDC Sammy Gyamfi said the committee that was set up and tasked to investigate the incident by the then Energy minister Boakye Agyako the Movenpina-Zup Oil contaminated fuel saga, found that the transaction was criminal.

He also disclosed that the committee found that thousands of litres of contaminated fuel lodged into the NPA account are yet to be accounted for.

“Today we know that the committee tasked to investigate the Movenpina-Zup Oil contaminated fuel saga, has found that the transaction was criminal and that, the proceeds from same has not been paid into the state coffers till date.”

“Indeed, the committee’s report indicates that Movenpina has not paid BOST for the 471,000 litres sold through Zup Oil Limited.”

“The committee also found out that thousands of litres of fuel which was lodged in the tanks of the NPA could not be accounted for,” he stated.

The NDC Communications Officer said the committee’s provides enough grounds to conclude that the transaction was not only “unlawful for breach of the Public Procurement Law and the NPA Act, but the proceeds from same have been pocketed by a few corrupt officials and criminal entities with the tacit approval of President Akufo-Addo.”
