The Managing Director (MD) of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR), Isaac Osei, is set to bow out of the company, reports reaching theghananewsreport.com suggests.
Mr Osei, succeeded Mr Kwame Awuah Darko in 2017 after the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government took office.
Reasons for his departure are not known. But he is said to have announced his resignation at an end of year gathering for TOR staff.
“…we may not be here after 2020. So, let me just tell you…let me tell you that this certainly will be my last carols service with you as your MD because you know in life, we move on and I’ll be moving on”.
“So, that is what I want to leave with you. But know that with unity, under the leader of the … and the Board, this company can be moved into another level. I expect that all of you, especially those of you from TOR, will support whoever comes in as the next MD and move the company to another level. So, I thank all of you,” he said in a wave of goodbyes and motivation to the staff.
Mr Osei was a former NPP presidential aspirant and also served as Member of Parliament (MP) for Subin Constituency in the Ashanti Region.
He is a former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Cocoa Board and one-time Ghana High Commissioner to the UK.
Mr Osei, who turns 65 next year, previously worked on many projects for the World Bank, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
