 Shortage of fuel In Ghana at BOST depots has to lead to employment in the issue of tanker drivers for a couple of months.

The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) after a massive shortage in fuel at the (BOST) depot making plenty of tanker drivers jobless has appealed to the president of land, President Nana Akufo-Addo to come into their aid in the operations of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) as its operations were taking a nosedive.

They continued making a statement and argument that getting to a year now there has been a great decline in the number of  the Tanker Drivers and this has rendered them jobless due to shortage of fuel stock at the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) Depots as they couldn't  load to destinations easily as matter of fact.

“The leaders of The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) have currently made a step into the issue as they have been inundated with calls and complaints from the (BOST) by the provincial drivers transporting petroleum products across the country and these activities contributes immensely to the total economic growth of the country,” added.

George Nyaunu, National Chairman of The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) has signed up a petition to the President through Executive Secretary, Nana Asante Bediatuo and copied to the Minister of Energy, said the Executive members had tried to digest the problems concerning the operations at Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) by meeting to negotiate with the management and other stakeholders in the industry.

“In Addition, the saddest fact of the matter is that majority of our members (tanker drivers) have been remained jobless due to the above-mentioned reason for one year now due to the downward activities of BOST’s operations which is also affecting economic growth,” he said.

He added that as stakeholders in the industry, they were very much aware that Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited had not been able to stock fuel at its prime depot “due to the inability of management to make economically achievable, enough, and bearable financial arrangements to procure products for our continuous operations.”

The Union however appealed to the President to come into the matter and solve the current management problem because of the poor managerial issue at Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) as “it is obviously since the recent leadership is not making up to expectations and interests of our members and for that matter to the nation at large.”

Deducing from the scenes in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Accra some few days ago, Mr. Nyaunu said the unavailable of stock at the BOST depot was giving an albatross on their necks as most of the drivers are struggling to survive day in and day out. How these drivers were being unable to take care of their families.

“As of now, things are though and how do you even expect our members to feed their families if they have to sit at home for about a year? We are very sure the President will intervene for the survival of BOST and the drivers as well,” he said.
