On Monday February 12, 2018, we published a story on our portal culled from another media entity with the headline below;

Senyo Hosi Exposes NPA And Government

Communications Manager for NPA, Anny Osabutey has since contacted us that portions of the said publication were "palpable false and scandalous", especially, "the comments attributed to Mr. Senyo Hosi, who was one of several guests at the event, to suggest he accused the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), and the latter failed to offer a response to counter his accusations".

It was alleged he made those comments at the National Petroleum Authority’s downstream colloquium 2018 edition held at Kempinski Hotel in Accra. 

Consequently, a verification exercise carried out by Our Editorial Desk, shows that our publication, which we sourced from ATV, did indeed contain some misrepresentation and deeply regret the use of our platform to put out such factual inaccuracies.

We hereby retract the offending publication and unreservedly apologize to the Authority and all persons named in this story for the embarrassment caused them.

As a mark of the sincerity of our apology, the said publication has since been pulled down from our website. We also publish below the NPA’s rejoinder unedited.

Thank You



Editor, Peacefmonline.com





 



REJOINDER: SENYO HOSI EXPOSES NPA AND GOVERNMENT

Hassan Tampuli, NPA Chief Executive Officer
February 13, 2018
Dear Sir/Madam

REJOINDER: SENYO HOSI EXPOSES NPA AND GOVERNMENT

I write in respect of the above headline which was a news article published on your website.   http://peacefmonline.com/pages/local/news/201802/343880.php

First and foremost, it is palpable false and scandalous, the comments attributed to Mr. Senyo Hosi, who was one of several guests at the event, to suggest he accused the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), and the latter failed to offer a response to counter his accusations.

Mr. Hosi, during question time, said corruption is a chain and stakeholders know where the products are sold. He therefore called for those responsible to be sanctioned, while commending steps taken by the NPA to address the problem.

In his response to what Mr. Hosi said, Hassan Tampuli, Chief Executive Officer, said the NPA continues to collaborate with port authorities and the security agencies to stem the practice.

He further said they had tracked such illegalities, impounded trucks and products which had been sold to Goil to be auctioned. He insisted: “We are taking action.”

Judging from the above, it is obviously clear your reporter may have been ABSENT at the event and pencilled reports of HEARSAY to give a bad name to an event which was hugely successful.

The Authority therefore not ONLY demands an IMMEDIATE RETRACTION and APOLOGY rendered, but the rejoinder given the same prominence as the main article.

Best,

Anny Osabutey
Communications Manager, NPA.
