Lawyers of Senya Hosi, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Bulk Oil Distribution Companies (BDCs), have given Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong 24 hours to retract and apologise for making bribery and corruption claims against him.
Mr Agyapong, while speaking on Accra-based Oman FM and subsequently on Accra-based Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, claimed that he (Mr Hosi) attempted bribing the Managing Director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST), Alfred Obeng Boateng, with $1million so that a consignment of off-spec fuel sold to Movenpiina Company Limited by BOST would have been abrogated and rather sold to him (Mr Hosi).
According to Mr Agyapong, Mr Obeng Boateng rejected the bribe. He further alleged that Mr Hosi was part of a cartel that is deliberately going after the BOST MD because he refused to sell the fuel to them.
However, Mr Hosi has denied the allegation. “This is just not true. I will look for his number and speak to him, he is an MP and so I will need to accord him the respect and so I will call him and speak to him. But I will take a proper legal action against him to restore my image because it is libellous,” he said.
Lawyers for Mr Hosi on Friday, 30 June issued a warning to the MP to retract the statement and apologise within 24 or be sued.
