Some employees of Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) have placed wreaths with ‘RIP’ inscriptions at the company’s door to welcome Mr. Edwin Provencal, the company’s Chief Executive Officer.
The identities of the workers have not been revealed, but insiders told Accra-based Starr News that certain employees who are opposed to the CEO’s efforts to combat corruption may have put the wreaths to intimidate him.
“RIP Mr. Edwin Provencal,” and “Rest well” were among the messages on the predominantly white and red wreaths.
Mr. Provencal in an interview with Daily Graphic stated that the development was strange but not unexpected.
“Lately, transport owners’ activities on the adulteration and tampering of seals, which is curbed by BOST and the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), has made us targets,” he said.
Mr. Provencal also noted that the action meant to stop the rot in the system to restore the image of the company and allow the government to rake in the needed revenues could be a factor.
“I am not surprised because it could also be because some disgruntled staff are worried about the introduction of rigorous performance management systems to drive performance,” he added.
