    Ghana National Gas Company has
    demanded a retraction and apology from the Herald Newspaper for a story linking
    its CEO to an alleged rot at the Ghana National Petroleum Commission.

    The story was titled “Ghana Gas
    Boss’ 40-year-old letter exposes US$2 billion GNPC-Genser loot”.

    Ghana Gas in a statement said its
    CEO, Dr. Ben K.D. Asante, never served as the Director of Technical Regulations
    at the Energy Commission.

    It also said Dr. Asante did not
    sign the aforementioned letter dated 17th February 2019 as alleged by the
    Herald Newspaper.

    “It must be noted that Dr. Ben
    K.D. Asante was appointed as the CEO of Ghana National Gas Company Limited in
    April 2017, and he has remained at this position till date.”

    “The publication in the Herald
    Newspaper linking Dr. Ben K.D. Asante to The Energy Commission is a deliberate
    matter of wrongful and unfounded claims,” Ghana Gas added.

    There have been concerns that
    Ghana could incur losses of $1.5 billion financial loss in an agreement between
    the GNPC and a US-based Ghanaian-owned energy company, Genser Energy Holdings.
