Audio Attachment:The Chief Executive of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) and the Minister for Energy and Petroleum have given contradictory and convoluted answers to questions regarding the application of the TOR Debt Recovery Levy.
Energy Minister Emmanuel Kofi Buah insists the monies accruing from the levy have been used to partially settle TOR’s debts, while TOR boss Ato Ampiah insists that the levy, which was imposed on petroleum products to pay down the Refinery’s debt, was not used for this purpose.

I read the current problems on Energy and Water with regret. My view is the Government is not telling the Country the truth or are not in the position to solve the problem. These are the basic things that is required for a human bean to live on and a Country like Ghana can not provide it for its people. Don't the President and his ministers feel ashamed when they are sleeping in their houses with lights turn on all over the house when they don't even need them on? They can afford to turn the tap on to clean their free given cars and wash the compound with water when the rest of the Country are going without? Have these people got any feelings or they think they are the only selected few who can enjoy the worth of the Country? It will not be long Ghanaians will get up to their rights so they should be mindful. A whole Head of state can come to broad cast to the nation promising to ensure the light problem will be stopped and since then the situation get worse? It is a joke. God helps Ghana.This Energy Minister must be sacked, he is a disgrace to himself.

I have never heard or seen the audited accounts of TOR. Their accounts should be audited for public consumption and the truth made clear or appear before the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament for further questions on this matter.

Mr. Minister, how much money have been collected since you took power and where is it? I think its time Ghanians woke up to the reality that these politicians are there to deceive, steal and destroy this country for their personal gains. We as individuals may not be able to bring them to book but it is always my prayer that the Good Lord who created the heavens and the earth pay these politicians according to their works.
