Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has today, Friday, August 6, 2021, inaugurated the newly constituted Board of the National Petroleum Authority on behalf of President Akufo-Addo.
He charged the Board to be keen on quality assurance within the downstream petroleum value chain.
He further stated that in an era where petrochemical products are wrought with changes locally and internationally even in terms of specifications, design and pricing, there must be strong leadership to avert consumer perception challenges and controversies.

According to him, he has full confidence in the board’s ability to make the NPA a regulator worth its salt in the energy sector.
The board is chaired by Joe Addo-Yobo.
Manuel Sawyyerr Esq., Clement Osei Amoako, Bernard Owusu, and Dr Nana Agyei Baffour Awuah as members.
