NPP Gurus’ Oil Companies Collapsed By NPA

Senior officials of the New Patriotic Party NPP including the Board Chairman of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) have lost their license to trade in Petroleum products at filling stations across the country as Oil Marketing Companies (OMC).

The NPA announced the closure of some 30 fuel filling stations across the country. The NPA said the 30 had repeatedly flouted operational regulations and had therefore been closed down including an Petra Energy Limited, owned by Joseph Addo-Yobo, a former Managing Director of BOST and now NPA Board Chairman.

Publishing the names of the companies, their CEOs, addresses and other relevant information, checks show several of the stations are owned by persons with close ties to the government including a major Regional Chairman of the NPP.

A source says some of the companies are so indebted that by dissolving and declaring bankruptcy, they hope to avoid the burden of liability hiding under the veil of incorporation.

Beyond external exposures, checks show some of these collapsed OMC companies also owe NPA to the tune of Millions in state margins that are overdue but unpaid to date.

It is not yet clear how those state funds will be recouped aside these companies other commitments.
