Host of the Gold Power Drive, Samuel Eshun and his co-host Peter Bamfo have described as fake the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) report into the raging Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST) contaminated fuel saga.
Samuel Eshun, while hosting the program Thursday, said his sources at the state security agencies indicate that “they have not sighted any such report.”
“Is there existence of any BNI and national security report on BOST contaminated fuel saga at all?” Samuel Eshun questioned.
The journalists are therefore challenging Mr. Boakye Agyarko to make public the said report for scrutiny if it exists.
They also asked Mr. Agyarko to disclose the terms of reference of the said report as well as the time frame in which the supposed report was conducted.
“I have not sighted any report from the BNI on the BOST saga. My checks with my sources at the state security agencies show there is no such existence of BNI report. I have every reason to doubt the existence of such report coming from the BNI and national security,” Samuel Eshun said on the Gold Power Drive.
He continued: “In time past, report of such nature is leaked to friendly media houses for publications. Where is the BNI report on the BOST scandalous deal?” He asked.
For his part, co-host of the program, Peter Bamfo said: “I expect them (BNI) to come public and clear their name that the supposed report Mr. Boakye Agyarko read, did not emanate from their outfit because the BNI is represented on a committee set up by the same Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko to investigate the BOST scandalous sale of contaminated fuel to unlicensed company.”
This revelation comes after many Ghanaians and think tanks including IMANI Ghana sought to discredit the said report describing it as ‘delinquent’ and ‘juvenile’.
Pressure group, OccupyGhana for instance said the BNI report is not comprehensive and that the government should provide “better and further” particulars of the deal.
The NDC Minority in parliament has also described the same BNI report as shameful.
The report read by Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko, at a media briefing sought to exonerate the Managing Director of the BOST, Alfred Obeng Boateng, of any wrongdoing in the sale of five million litres of contaminated fuel to Movenpiina Company Limited, a company which was not registered at the time of transaction.
The two journalists, Samuel Eshun and Peter Bamfo, insist the BOST adulterated fuel report does not exist and are therefore asking the Minister to make the ‘phantom’ report public.
