Probe bribery allegation against former MD of TOR – Joe Jackson


A Financial Analyst, Mr Joe Jackson, has asked the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu to investigate the bribery allegations made against the immediate past of the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR), Mr Asante Berko.

Mr Asante Berko on Wednesday April 15 resigned from his post and submitted his resignation letter to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He has been accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States of America of having arranged a US$2.5 million bribe for some Ghanaian government officials and MPs in connection with helping a Turkish firm secure a power purchase agreement deal in Ghana.

The former Goldman Sachs banker, according to the US SEC, allegedly made the payments in 2015 and 2016.

But, Mr. Berko, in a statement, said that the claims against him were false.

But Mr Joe Jackson said in a tweet that the Special Prosecutor must step in to investigate the matter.

“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Citizen Vigilante/ SpecialProsecutor/ Hon Martin Amidu over to you. When are you inviting someone?”
