The Ministry of Energy and Petroleum Resources, says it has followed with keen interest, public concerns on the high cost of the premises rented by National Petroleum Authority(NPA) as office.
According to the sector Minister, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah: "If the NPA's office was rented at a cost of $63,000 per month as has been reported, then that hardly represents prudent use of state resources, no matter how conducive or appropriate the facility is for their operations.”
A statement signed by Deputy Head of Communications at the Ministry, Mr Ras Liberty Amewode in Accra said: "The Minister would be demanding from the Board and Management of the NPA, an explanation for such a decision, especially the consideration that went into a decision that runs at variance with the philosophy and preferences of… the President as far as the use of public funds are concerned."
It therefore assured the public that the Ministry would do everything possible to get to the bottom of the matter.
