BOST saga: BNI cover-up insult to Ghanaians – Minority

The Minority in parliament has described as insulting the handling of  the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation’s (BOST) controversial sale of contaminated fuel by the Bureau of National Investigations(BNI).

The minority insist that the Bureau of National Investigation(BNI) and the Energy Ministry are conniving to cover up rot at BOST to shield the Manager Director, Alfred Obeng from any wrongdoing.

The comment follows Tuesday’s Press conference organized by the Energy minister, Boakye Agyarko clearing Mr. Obeng from the accusations in connection with the fuel saga.

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, in a press conference on Wednesday July 5, said their side is scandalized by the fact that the Energy Minister is causing a lax investigative efforts after he hurriedly set up a Ministerial committee made of stakeholders to look into the matter.

However, he said:”…In a most bizarre and shameful twist, this same Energy Minister addressed a press conference yesterday July 4, 2017 claiming that even before his own committee would get to work, the BNI and National Security have exonerated the BOST Managing Director, Mr Alfred Obeng Boateng, and absolved him of all wrongdoing. July 4, 2017 will certainly go down in history as Ghana’s day of shame!”

According to him, the situation is nothing short of a “naked cover-up” adding this is an insult to Ghanaians and an affront to the laws of Ghana.”

For them, “the signs are now crystal clear that the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government has no commitment to fighting corruption”.

He continued:“Following revelations by a Member of Parliament on the Majority side alleging that the beleaguered BOST MD was a major financier of the presidential campaign of Nana Akufo-Addo and that Mr Obeng Boateng is untouchable – it is now obvious to many a Ghanaian that under the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government there will be different strokes for different folks. NPP financiers who loot state coffers and engage in unbridled corruption will be let off the hook under his watch. In any case, this distasteful episode affords us an exclusive insight into how people came by their appointments under the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government. These are very troubling times for our motherland.”
