Dr. is working to put TOR on a sound footing- Energy Ministry to IES

The Ministry of Energy has refuted claims by Institute of Energy Security (IES), an energy think tank that the Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has Failed to provide a single strategic option to lift the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR).

The energy think tank had also posited that the Energy Minister has failed to provide the necessary leadership aimed at finding a strategic partner towards the revamping of the refinery, among other allegations.

However, the Ministry has debunked the assertions with a nine point statement.

“It is evident from the foregoing that Dr. Prempeh has demonstrated clear leadership, vision and focus in working towards the revamping of TOR, and that the claims made by the IES is borne either out of ignorance of these facts or a deliberate attempt to tarnish the Minister’s image.

One would expect that the IES would be circumspect in its public pronouncements on issues in the energy sector and at least seek information and facts before going public. This is in view of the weight that is likely to be accorded its position.

The Ministry wishes to assure Ghanaians that Dr. Prempeh is resolutely committed to ensuring that TOR is put on a sound footing to support Ghana’s industrialization drive, and will continue to provide strategic leadership and direction in this regard.”
