Members of the ruling National Democratic Congress working at the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) are to blame for the collapse of the State's oil refinery according to Member of Parliament for Wassa Amenfi Central, George Arthur.

Mr. Arthur contributing to the topic ‘TOR must work’ on Adom FM on Thursday said he has failed to comprehend why the NDC members who have been employed in the company do not see the need to ensure that such a big enterprise works.

“I blame the NDC people who are working with TOR and are not ensuring that TOR would function, and making people always condemn the Mahama administration for this problem…,” he said.

Ghana’s sole oil refinery has not been functioning for years now with several Bulk Oil Distribution Companies (BDC’s) in the country now importing finished fuel and selling them directly on the market.

This, the workers insisted have been to the disadvantage of the nation as Ghana would have benefited more if the refinery worked to process fuel for the market instead.

The complaints, the MP said, are not the best, especially as it would all contribute to the downfall of the Mahama administration which is already being blamed for numerous problems in the country.

He further called on the NDC members at the refinery to ‘ask themselves why the company was working during one particular regime and not in our time’.

“Are non-performing NDC board members happy at the criticisms the party is suffering from the public...and even from persons who cannot identify six from nine?” he asked rhetorically.

The Auditor General, he further proposed, should audit the accounts of TOR as a means of helping to diagnose the exact problems of TOR.

He concluded by calling on Ghanaians to change their attitude to public companies if the country is to profit from such enterprises.
