Tema, Dec. 30, GNA - Management of Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) on Tuesday denied rumours that it had closed down its operations. Speaking to Ghana News Agency at Tema, Mrs Aba Lokko, Public Affairs Manager of TOR said "there is no reason why TOR would close down to the public." "We are working and supplying petroleum products to Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs)," she said.
Mrs Lokko said management had a shift system and operated 24 hours and some workers were on duty even during public holidays. She assured the public especially OMCs and users of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) to ignore the rumours. Rumours were rife within Tema Metropolis that managements of TOR and some financial institutions had closed down following the alleged tension on the declaration of the Presidential Election Run-off results.
