We write to bring to your attention a widespread issue concerning the sale of 5 million litres of contaminated fuel sold to Movenpinaa at 1ghc per litre under very suspicious process and invoke your high office to properly investigate the matter in order to bring closure to it in the interest of nation building.

It has emerged that Movenpiina and Zup Oil are not licenced to undertake any commecial activity in the downstream petroleum sector.

With no down payment, Movenpiina bought the contaminated fuel and subsequently sold to MacWest Limited for Ghc 1.32 and later sold to Zup Oil Limited for Ghc 1.80.

We at Strategic Thinkers Network (STRANEK) keenly observed events surrounding the deal and the widespread condemnation from industry experts and civil society organizations. It is not doubtful that this altercative issue has once again put the country on the spot light for wrong reasons.

We have as well taken note of the fact that Bureau Of National Investigation (BNI) and National Security has exonerated the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) Managing Director.

Industry experts, civil society organizations as well as other political parties have began to question the authenticity of the report.

It is for this reason, we at STRANEK make a passionate call on Commission Of Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to look into this scandalous matter. We believe CHRAJ is independent enough to handle this investigation and submit a report which will be credible for all and sundry to understand.

CHRAJ must respectfully focus on

a) the conflict of interest with regards to the relation between Movenpinaa and the BOST MD, Mr Alfred Obeng Boateng.

b) The purported corruption as to whether Movenpinaa Company was the only company BOST dealt with in the sale of the contaminated fuel in a sole sourced transaction.

c) Whether or not negligence, lack of supervision played a pivotal role with regards to the contaminated fuel which could be seen as an attempt to enrich others at the expense of the state and the Ghanaian tax payer?

We hope our clarion call on CHRAJ to look into this matter will be fulfilled.

We are all involved in building our motherland Ghana.
