Aspiring Ashanti regional NDC Chairman Joseph Yammin is at the throat of the New Patriotic Party over a damning comment circulating on social media against former Managing Director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport Company (BOST).
The comment reads:
“The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) is on the heels of Kingsley Kwame Awuah-Darko, the immediate-past Managing Director (MD) of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Company Limited, over some alleged payments and withdrawals from the government’s account.
The account in question is the Chief of Staff’s ‘Sundry Account’ which the BOST boss regularly lodged money into and reportedly cashed by the Office of the Chief of Staff under President John Mahama.
Joseph Yammin however has taken up the role of schooling the NPP zealots circulating that post on how things work in governance. He wants the NPP folks to take time to seek clarity before rushing out to create untrue pictures of corruption in the erstwhile administration.
“It is legal transferring monies into flagstaff house account by BOST so why this noise about Awuah Darko being investigated by EOCO. They should stop using Awuah to cover up their corrupt deals. Should it take the BOST saga to institute investigations into Awuah Darko’s administration if he mishandled BOST as an institution?”
About BOST lodging and withdrawing money from the Chief of staff’s “sundry Account”, Yammin explains that “BOST was in charge of supplying fuel to the security services as well as flagstaff house which is also considered a security establishment. So the police, military amongst others were being supplied fuel by BOST. BOST again was supplying fuel to GOIL in commercial quantities and since BOST had no capacity to supply directly to the military and police etc across the country, decided to supply GOIL which directly supplies fuel to flagstaff house and the security Services. GOIL would however issue an invoice to the flagstaff house for their payment. So when GOIL invoices flagstaff house for the supplies then BOST pays for flagstaff house”.
“When will they also tell us the good things that Awuah Darko left at BOST as the MD of the place?”, Yammin queried emotionally.
