Prosecute Agyarko over AMERI deal – COPEC demands
The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) Ghana is demanding the dismissal and prosecution of Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko over the failed Ameri novation agreement. This was contained a statement issued by COPEC.
COPEC is demanding answers to 8 crtical questions they have raised with regards to the AMERI dal. “We therefore call upon the president to urgently fire or sack the Energy minister and it’s communicators and prosecute them,” the statement signed by Sampson Addae said.
AMERI Energy has refuted claims it was informed about the renegotiated deal. But the Energy Ministry is insisting the company was informed. They have since asked government to desist from any attempt to award the deal to another company.
The president is also said to have been misinformed over the deal. Read the full statement below Mr President, sack the Energy Minister. The defense by the energy Ministry and it’s communicators for the Ameri novation agreement leaves well-meaning Ghanaians shocked as more fundamental questions spring forth and beg for answers.
Pertinent among these mind boggling questions begging for answers are as follows:
1.Why will any individual prepare a novation amendment agreement to buy out Ameri Energy and hand it to a third party
2.What prompted the said individual to prepare such document and present it to the president?
3.Has the said individual ever succeeded in presenting a scandalized document to the president and it went through.
4.How did the said individual arrive at choosing Mytilineos International Trading Company and not any other company?
5.Why has the country defaulted in outstanding payment of 82,660,560.00 of which Ameri is ready to take a legal action against the state.
6.Could it also be said that the president was also misled into believing the lies on contaminated fuel saga when the evidence was clear. • You’ve been embarrassed; sack those who misled you – Akufo-Addo told
7.Again could it also be said that the president was also misled into believing the 1.8 million barrels of crude which the country lost about $5.6 million when it was sold?
8.Was the president misled to sack the board of Ghana cylinder manufacturing company (GCMC) against the CEO? The said individual can continue to mislead the president but cannot mislead COPEC to do their corrupt activities.
We will also fight for the consumers by ensuring value for money auditing and expose corrupt officials. We therefore call upon the president to urgently fire or sack the Energy minister and it’s communicators and prosecute them.
