The Deputy Energy Minister for Petroleum, Mohammed Amin Adam, has hinted that the next former government appointee to face prosecution is Kwame Awuah Darko, the former Chief Executive of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST).
Mohammed Amin Adam did not specifically name the former CEO, but the hints he gave pointed clearly at Mr. Awuah Darko who simultaneously managed BOST and the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) during the erstwhile administration of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The deputy energy minister said the very serious mismanagement under current investigation includes transactions that are being investigated today for a possible prosecution. Some qof the transactions were done between BOST and the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR). You will remember that we had one managing director for the two companies and it was during that time such questionable transactions took place, he told the press in Accra Tuesday.
The specific allegations under which Mr. Awuah-Darko might be charged for is unclear, but under his tenure, civil society groups had tabulated a series of financial losses and questionable transactions.
He was recently on the watch list of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) after accusations emerged that he supervised the transfer of an amount of GH¢40.5 million from BOST to the presidency under then John Dramani Mahama administration.
Appointees of the former National Democratic Congress (NDC) are being systematically picked up for prosecution or questioning over allegations leveled against them as former heads of important government institutions.
