According to Mr Osei Prempeh, the oil marketing company decided to sacrifice part of its margin in the pricing window for the benefit of its customers and Ghanaians as a result of the “agitation of transporters and concerns of Ghanaians.”

“In the previous window, GOIL reduced prices by 14 pesewas without any prompting of being ‘directed’ by government to do so and on the occasion, GOIL decided to reduce its prices after taking all the necessary steps to safeguard its business.”

Due to the above mentioned, Osei Prempeh however stated that he is surprised that the AOMC found its voice and the audacity to make such a claim.

He further challenged the Association to provide proof for its allegations.

The company said the action by the AOMC amounts to gross disrespect and contempt, therefore, has decided to suspend its membership.

“GOIL is a responsible company fully aware of the deregulated environment in which we operate. The allegation that government is interfering in the industry is unfounded and baseless. GOIL has the right as any other OMC to determine prices, the statement said.
