A member of the National Communications Team of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Davis Opoku aka OPK has alleged that the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers, Ghana (COPEC) led by its Executive Secretary, Duncan Amoah has set out to blackmail the MD of Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Alfred Obeng.
According to him, COPEC has mounted a sustained agenda to ensure that baseless allegations about BOST is always make the headlines in the media to discredit the hardworking MD.
The Executive Secretary of COPEC, Duncan Amoah, claims his life is in danger after he uncovered an alleged shady deal at BOST and has vowed to follow up on the scandal even if that wreaks danger to his life as a citizen of the country.
He’s asserts that some unidentified assailants allegedly linked to Mr Obeng have vowed to eliminate him in three days and has consequently reported the matter to the police but that notwithstanding he’d also taken some “personal security” measures to ensure his security is not compromised.
COPEC uncovered an alleged sell off of 1.8million barrels of crude oil by BOST, causing the state to lose about 5.3 million dollars, Mr. Boateng on Friday said.
But speaking to Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa FM Monday, Davis Opoku stated that Duncan Amoah who has set out to do someone’s dirty job is bound to fail as Mr Alfred Obeng has done no wrong in the discharge of his duties, and further alleged that COPEC was set up to protect the former BOST MD, Kwame Awuah Darko.
“We know the agenda that is ongoing, Mr Alfred Obeng has been working very hard since he took office, but day in day out COPEC puts BOST in the news. All the allegations made against BOST have always proved to be false after investigations are conducted. This is an agenda to blackmail Alfred Obeng, secondly to ensure that BOST is always in a crisis meeting one after the other trying to respond to some of these things. This is because they know that the operation of BOST is crucial to the economy. All the allegations have no merit.
” If Duncan Amoah wants to do business with BOST, he should go through the right process and not this attempt to blackmail him by claiming someone with links to Mr Alfred Obeng has threatened him with death. Of what value will somebody gain in trying to kill Duncan Amoah. He should stop this ranting on radio and do what is proper.”
