A subsidiary of SEND Foundation of West Africa, SEND Ghana has dissociated itself from a statement issued by the Civil Society Organisations (CSO) demanding the dismissal of some authorities of the Ghana National Petroleum Commission (GNPC).
Some 29 CSOs demanded the immediate removal of the Board Chairman of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Freddie Blay, and the acting Chief Executive Officer, Opoku Ahweneeh Danquah.
This is reportedly informed by allegations of irregularities that have fraught the GNPC. One allegation that has caught the public’s eye is that the Board Chairman, Mr Blay tried to sell 50% of the country’s oil interest in Cape Three Points to PetroSA.
In a statement sighted by JoyNews and endorsed by representatives from all 29 CSOs, the Coalition argued that a country being micromanaged by the IMF cannot be seen to be engaging in fiscal recklessness.
Amongst these 29 CSOs, SEND Ghana has been listed as the 19th member organisation demanding the removal of the authorities.
But the organisation says it is dissociating itself from the statement because it was not consulted to give its consent.
It said, “To put SEND Ghana’s name on such an important public document without the knowledge and explicit consent of its management is not only unethical but undermines the confidence the public has in our work.”
The organisation has, therefore, called on the group responsible for the statement to make the necessary corrections. It stressed that it did not co-sign the document as indicated.
“We are hereby disassociating SEND Ghana from the said statement and will like to inform the public that we were not consulted at any point in time before the story was published.
“To put SEND Ghana’s name on such an important public document without the knowledge and explicit consent of its management is not only unethical but undermines the confidence the public has in our work.
“We, therefore hope that the group responsible for this statement will correct the misleading notion that SEND Ghana co-signed the statement. WE DID NOT! We urge the public to disregard any news item associating SEND Ghana with the statement cited above,” part of the statement said.
