Government not selling TOR, says senior staff

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (21 June), chairman of the Senior Staff of TOR Bright Adongo debunked assertions that the refinery is being offered for sale

The senior staff of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) has commended the government for initiating steps to get a private investor to help revamp the refinery.

The staff say the move will bring the refinery back to full operation.

According to the senior staff, the move will not only ensure fuel security in the country but also guarantee job security for workers.

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (21 June), the chairman of the senior staff of TOR, Bright Adongo debunked assertions that the refinery is being offered for sale.

“We need to set the record straight; Tema Oil Refinery is not for sale. It’s a lease agreement we’re entering.

“All these things are happening because TOR should not just run; it must run profitably because it only benefits us when it runs profitably.”

Adongo added “We know the numbers out there are not correct but at the appropriate time, we’ll put the right numbers out. We can’t go into it now because the discussions are still ongoing.”
