I’ll revamp TOR if elected president – Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has promised to restore the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) to its glory days when elected as president in the upcoming December 7 general elections

According to the former President, a joint private-public partnership will be secured to help revive the nation’s troubled oil refinery.

Addressing a meeting with players in the petroleum downstream sector in Accra, Mr. Mahama said TOR will be given full attention under his next administration.

He added that “We need to look again at how we can bring the refinery back in place. But I do think that the problems we have with running that refinery is because it is a state-owned enterprise.”

“And we all know the inefficiencies that go with state-owned enterprises. And so we are open to private partnership in terms of bringing that refinery back into operation and running it, but we think that whatever private partnership or private participation is invited, it must come through a transparent process,”he concluded.
