The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has inaugurated a five-storey office complex in Accra. Located at Dzorwulu on the George Bush Highway, next to the office of the Petroleum Commission. The new office building will be the permanent headquarters of NPA to discharge its mandate of regulating, overseeing and monitoring the petroleum downstream industry in Ghana. For the first time in more than a decade, NPA will operate from its own premises.
Inaugurating the building on behalf of President John Mahama, Deputy Minister of Petroleum, Hon Benjamin Dagaudu commended the management and board of NPA for the initiative. He particularly commended the Board Chair, Mr. Ralph Roland and Chief Executive, Hon. Moses Asaga for their leadership in making the dream of NPA’s owned office a reality. Hon. Daguadu said the new NPA office will improve the efficiency of the regulator of the downstream industry.
In his opening remarks, the Chief Executive of NPA, Hon Moses Asaga said with the construction of its own office, NPA will have a conducive environment to deliverer its core mandate and strategic objectives without the distraction of moving offices which had been a setback for the Authority since its establishment in 2005. He thanked the Board, Management and Staff of NPA for the support in the successful completion of the new office building.
