Mr. Albert Mantey, Chairman of the Professional and Managerial Staff Union (PMSU) has been sacked and this have led some agitation at the Bulk Oil Storage & Transportation Co. Ltd. (BOST).

He was dismissed by the Managing Director (MD) of BOST, Kwame Awuah-Darko who accused him of breaching the company’s Conditions of Service by speaking to the media.

The letter stated that Mr. Mantey’s media interview has tarnished the image and reputation of BOST which is in breach of the company’s Clause 9.1.2 of the Conditions of Service.

The BDC said BOST owes them more than 50 million dollars on account of product losses.

They said since 2009 when they started using the storage facilities of BOST to store their petroleum products, they have consistently suffered losses.

The brewing controversy began after the media reported that there was a deliberate attempt to cause significant losses of petroleum products.

It said some highly placed officials at BOST were working with some BDCs to perpetuate losses enough to affect Ghana’s strategic petroleum reserve.

The media report was based on a leaked audit report prepared by Ernst and Young.

Top officials at BOST have been accused of, among others supporting the Bulk Distribution Companies (BDCs) to rob the oil storage company of petroleum products.

The news has left the Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber of Bulk Distribution Companies, Senyo Hosi, fighting off what he believes was an attempt to implicate him.

He has not only rejected the audit report which he believes was doctored but has also gone ahead to accuse the Managing Director of BOST, Kwame Awuah Darko of being behind attempts to incriminate him.
