A committee set up to investigate claims of losses made against the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Ltd (BOST) by some bulk oil distributing companies (BDCs) in oil lifting deals has concluded that a huge chunk of the claims was frivolous and “cooked” to siphon state funds.

Checks done by the Daily Statesman show the extent to which former President John Dramani Mahama went to tacitly justify and applaud a unilateral variation of the original agreement for building what has since become understood as the corruption-laden Saglemi housing project.

The government has debunked claims that it approved the recent importation of a large cache of arms into the country.

In the absence of “a valid explanation” for variations in the terms of the original agreement for construction of the Saglemi housing project, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Gloria Akuffo, has advised the Minister of Works and Housing, Samuel Atta Akyea, to refer the matter to the “appropriate authority for criminal investigations”.

Emerging findings from a highly regarded international development and monitoring organisation show that in spite of the sweat, effort and chicanery John Dramani Mahama has invested in arranging, funding and organising events such as Unity Walks, winning the 2020 general election will be a tall order for him.
