Mahama pledges to revamp TOR under a new NDC government


The presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, says a new administration under his presidency will revamp the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR).

A new joint private-public partnership will be secured to help revive the nation’s troubled oil refinery, he pledged.

He said this while speaking at a meeting with players in the petroleum downstream sector in Accra.


“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.”
