A group called Centre for Public Interest and Democratic Peace (CPIDP), led by the Executive Director, Mr. Alex Abaka Jacobs has called on the president of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack the Managing Director of  Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited(BOST), Mr. George Mensah Okley, and the head of finance, Mr. John Kojo Arkoful with immediate effect.

According to the group, the duo is involved in a scandalous transaction between BOST and Springfield Energy Company Limited in the matter of BOST’s indebtedness to Springfield Energy.

Mr Abaka added that the president’s silence on the recent expose’ of the high magnitude of corruption perpetrated by the current managing director and the head of finance of BOST to the tune of GH 14.4 million  (equivalent to USD 3 million ) has been creating doubt in the minds of most well-meaning Ghanaians as to whether indeed the president is serious about his assurance to fight corruption in Ghana.

He is of the view that, every well-meaning Ghanaian and civil society organizations built on integrity and national interest should be worried about the current development in the country because if whistleblowers risk to bring such fraudulent and scandalous transaction out and it turned out to be kept under the carpet, eventually they will be discouraged from exposing future corrupt practices.

“Let Springfield boldly go to the court, prove their case the law and let the court deliver its judgment of which BOST will then have the option of satisfying the judgment or if it is unhappy challenge the judgment up” he quizzed.

In conclusion, Mr. Alex Abaka Jacobs pleaded with president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to authorized security agencies such as EOCO, BNI, and CID of Ghana Police Service to retrieve the money from Springfield Energy.
