In a development bound to bring shame to Africa biggest oil producer, Ghana has started exporting fuel and gas oil to Nigeria, Benin Republic, Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali from the Bolgatanga Petroleum Depot run by the state-owned Bulk Oil Storage and Transport (BOST) Company Limited.

Ghana’s Minister of Petroleum, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, made this known yesterday at press briefing in Accra, adding that there were plans to extend the exports to Liberia in the coming months.

The minister said the vision of the government was to make Ghana the hub for the distribution of petroleum products in the West African sub-region.
