“We engaged BOST before this issue came up, and we were scheduled to meet them again when this issue came up. We want to take our time and meet them and do proper due diligence; we have to get the necessary documentation so that we can reach an informed decision,” he remarked
The Managing Director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST), Alfred Obeng Boateng, has so far denied allegations of financial malfeasance against the company by the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC), saying they are false and baseless.
