Mr. Kingsley Awuah Darko, Acting Managing Director of Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST), has been asked to take over responsibility for the management of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR).

Mr. Awuah Darko takes over from Dr. Alphone Kwao Dorcoo who has been reassigned to the Ministry of Petroleum.

The ongoing changes in the leadership of some public institutions have also hit the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), National Information Technology Agency (NITA) and the Ghana Venture Capital Trust Fund.

At EOCO, a Deputy Executive Director, Justice Tsar, has been appointed Acting Executive Director to replace Mr. Kweku Biadela Mortey whose contract appointment has expired after attaining the retirement age.

Mr. George Atta-Boateng of the Ghana Education Service takes over as Acting Director General of NITA following the appointment of William Tevie as Acting Director General of the National Communications Authority (NCA).

Mr. Osman Suleman is the new Acting CEO of the Ghana Venture Capital Trust Fund.

According to the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, the changes are part of President John Mahama’s ongoing restructuring of the leadership of government agencies.

Last week similar changes occurred at the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) and the National Identification Authority (NIA).
