The legislators believe the committee members have a role to play in the diversion of the premix fuel which has cost the nation over 22 million cedis. At least 200 cases of premix fuel diversions have been cited by the National Petroleum Authority, since January 2017. The Ministry of Energy, in May 2017, subsequently ordered the Fisheries Ministry to probe the companies alleged to be complicit in the fuel diversion. “We are losing almost 22 million cedis and that is huge,” he stated, adding members of the premix committee must be arrested as the first point of the investigation.
