Governance expert and lecturer at the University of Ghana, Legon, Dr Okyere Ankrah has furiously reacted to the theft situation at the Tema Oil refinery (TOR).
This portal reported an alleged theft of ¢10.4 million worth of cables among other product losses at the Tema Oil Refinery.
The company’s Interim Management Committee in a recent press release announced that it had interdicted some of its staff following an investigation conducted into product storage and transfer losses at the company.
Reacting to the issue on Okay FM, Dr Okyere Ankrah bemoaned why the alleged suspects will be interdicted when they should be answering questions in Police custody.
In a fit of rage he rained curses on the suspected TOR Staff who he believes have stolen from the poor Ghanaian taxpayer who has been hustling so much for their money.
“They are at home freely enjoying food and television meanwhile they should be cooling off in a guardroom. Instead of that, they have been interdicted, such a big English word that my grandmother does not understand,” fumed.
“See how people are suffering in this country. Ghanaian women wake up as early as 2 am just to go out and make ends meet. After hustling in the sun all day these poor women are levied and when the money is raised for national development these unscrupulous employees end up stealing everything. When you are paid at the end of the month and you look at the tax deducted from your payslip you ask exactly where such monies go. Lecturers declared strike because of money. But do you think the stolen money could have been prevented by the strike?” he questioned.
“I pray they all suffer from an incurable disease. Whatever property do acquire with the stolen money, may it be destroyed. I curse them and I am doing this with pain,” he stated.
