Tanker Owners Union appeals to govt to halt influx of tanker trucks

The Executive Secretary of the Tanker Owners Union, Ignatius Koku Doe, has raised concerns over the influx of tanker trucks into the country.

According to him, their checks have revealed that, about 300 tanker trucks have so far been imported into the country.

Mr Doe noted that, the union has informed the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) which is the regulatory body, but no concrete step has been taken.

Speaking on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, he said their businesses risk collapse if rele­vant stakeholders do not take immediate action.

“We discovered these tankers have been brought in by Sentuo Refinery, which is about to start the production of oil and gas in the country.

Already, the union members own about 5,000 trucks, and bringing in new ones to do the same job as ours will only create unhealthy competition,” he lamented.

Mr Doe has, therefore, appealed to government to intervene to ensure Sentuo focuses on produc­tion and leaves the transportation of the products to the tanker unions.

“We are already confronted with the situation and we are confused because it is creating fear and panic,” he said.

Mr Doe warned that if the regulatory body fails to act, they would resist the operation of these foreign tankers.
