President Nana Akufo-Addo has appointed Mr Edwin Provencal as the new Managing Director of the Bulk Oil and Transport (BOST) company limited.
Mr Provencal will replace Mr George Okley, who resigned on Friday.
It is not clear why Mr Okley tendered his resignation to the Presidency but the website of the state-run Daily Graphic reported that his resignation was in connection with issues regarding the award of contracts.
Mr Provencal, who is currently the Technical Director to the Energy Minister John Peter Amewu, will become the third MD of BOST in less than three years.
Deputy Energy Minister, Joseph Cudjoe, through a statement on Monday, 26 August 2019, asked the Board of BOST to take “due note” of the President’s appointment and “assess the suitability of Mr Provencal for the appointment accordingly.”
