The Executive Secretary of the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers, Ghana (COPEC), Duncan Amoah, has asked the Office of the Special Prosecutor to take over the investigations into the alleged scandal at the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST).
According to Duncan Amoah, Ghana lost about GH₵30 million in revenue when 1.8 million barrels of crude oil was sold at a discounted price to an unlicensed company known as BB Energy.
Mr. Amoah alleged that the discount was at two dollars a barrel when prices on the international market were on the rise.

Mr Amoah had also alleged that Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) was not involved in the sale of the crude oil.
But BOST has described Mr. Amoah’s allegations as yet another evidence of the COPEC boss’ ignorance.
The Managing Director of the BOST, Alfred Obeng Boateng, has described the allegations of financial malfeasance against the company by Duncan Amoah as false and baseless.
In a strongly-worded statement, Mr. Boateng said Duncan Amoah was simply an “enemy of progress” and should “be ignored at all times.”

He said he will follow up on the scandal to the end, even if it will endanger his life as a citizen of the country.
“BOST is really taking the citizens of this country for granted. They need to be investigated as soon as possible. I will make sure the Special Prosecutor takes charge and investigates the issue”, he added.
