GMD of Ghana’s only national refinery, Isaac Osei resigns

Group Managing Director of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR), Engr. Isaac Osei, has presented his resignation letter to the Chairman of the Board of the national refinery indicating January 1, 2020 as effective date if leaving office.

Business Hilights’ Ghana Bureau chief reports that in his valedictory speech during the company’s Carol’s service, Osei averred that “those of us who are political appointees; our job is of a transient nature, today you may be managing director, tomorrow you may be sweeping somewhere”.

He wished the company and staff well, saying wherever he find himself, he will continue to speak for TOR.

On his achievements during the three years span, one of TOR’s furnace which exploded in 2017 was replaced and ready to operate its 45000 barrels per stream day capacity.

Besides, Osei further assured industrial harmony and also ensured that the company completed payment for a 120 tonne per hour boiler which would help in power generation activities for TOR.

Within the period under review, the outgoing chief executive made sure that rack 3 which got burnt at TOR’s loading gantry was restored to boost refining efficiency which is now taking Ghana to domestic sustainability in petroleum products.
