The Ghana Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors (CBOD) says it has taken note of the “unfortunate leakage” of its petition to the Minister of Energy and the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), on issues relating to the enforcement of the downstream petroleum local content policy.
A statement signed by CEO Senyo Hosi, said: “We wish to bring to the notice of the public that since our petition, we have been duly engaged by the NPA and Ministry of Energy, who identify with our concerns and have commenced steps to remedy and address the issues raised”.
“We are impressed by the alacrity and zeal with which the Minister of Energy, the NPA CEO and Board have moved to address our concerns and protect the Ghanaian downstream for Ghanaians”, the statement noted.
CBOD expressed gratitude to the Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the NPA Board Chairman, Mr. Joe Addo-Yobo and the NPA CEO, Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid “for the openness with which they continue to engage with us to address issues of concern to industry”.
“We remain committed to partnering the government in the deepening of Ghanaian participation and content to develop Ghanaian skills, provide jobs and drive the overall economic well-being of Ghana”, the statement added.
