Mahama Pushes For TOR Privatization

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has pledged to revamp the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) if he is elected president come December 7.


“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,” Mr. Mahama said.


Mr. Mahama stated that a joint private-public partnership will be secured to help revive the nation’s troubled oil refinery.
