Details are emerging of desperate attempts by Mr. Alfred Obeng Boateng to get some prominent personalities to beg on his behalf.
Mr. Alfred Obeng Boateng who took a unilateral action of selling some 5 million litters of contaminated oil worth Ghc 15 million for a paltry Ghc 5 million to his company has come under heavy public bashing and the President is under pressure to sack him and have him prosecuted.
In an attempt to save his job, Mr. Obeng Boateng chased Bawumia to China to plead with him but that seems not to be making any impact as Gabby Asare Otchere Darko who is rumoured to be the defacto Chief of Staff of President Akufo-Addo is making moves to have him fired.
Two days before going to China Mr. Obeng was trying to get the energy minister Boakye Agyarko to intervene for him but Mr. Agyarko emphatically told him that the Akyem cabal want him out as BOST MD and there was very little that can be done, he got the same response from Vice President Dr Bawumia too.
Having failed to get any support from Agyarko and Dr. Bawumia, he dashed to the palace of Otumfuo Osei Tutu, the revered King of Ashanti who commands a great deal of influence.
Sources at Manhyia claims Mr. Obeng Boateng came to see the king to talk to the President not to sack him, our sources told us the meeting lasted for almost 2 hours and he was seen leavingthe palace sad and down.
Already ACEP, an energy Think Thank affiliated to the NPP is calling on the President to sack him and hand him over to the security agencies to have him prosecuted.
