Energy Minister inaugurates board of Tema Oil Refinery

Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the Minister of Energy has inaugurated the newly constituted board of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR).

Dr Opuku Prempeh tasked the board to work as a team and cooperate with each other and management to be proactive and innovative in seeking strategic partnerships to ensure TOR’s viability.

He urged the new board to be tactical enough to ensure that there is a conducive working environment to improve upon the relationship between the board and management as well as unions.

“It is in our collective interest as a nation for TOR to be fully operational, especially at this time and more especially when we have our own discovery,” he said.

The minister added that, TOR is an important national asset that must be protected.

“I believe its transformation lies in individual hearts and minds. I am confident that with the collective input of all stakeholders we can empower TOR to play its vital role in our economic development. I am clear in my mind that with the diverse expertise represented on this Board, you will deliver. I once again want to assure you of my support as sector Minister as we embark on this journey together.”

In his response, David Kwame Tandoh Adomako chairman of the board agreed to all Dr Prempeh said and assured him of their full commitment to managing the facility just as any private individual will manage his personal business and leave TOR better than they met it.

The board is made up of David Kwame Tandoh Adomakoh (chairman), and members include; Jerry Kofi Hinson(MD), Nana Akua Bakoma Prempeh, Prince Hamidu Armah, Prof Albert Ahenkan, Edith Sapara-Grant, Kamal-Deen Abdulai, Leon Kendon Appenteng and Irene sei Bonsu.
