I’m not a quack doctor – Obengfo owner, Obeng-Andoh replies critics



The owner of Obengfo Hospital (Advanced BodySculpt Center) Dr. Dominic Obeng-Andoh has responded to critics who say he is a quack doctor operating illegally.

He rubbished claims that he is unqualified to practice medicine, stating that critics were only jealous.

This is coming after his state-of-the-art medical facility was closed down recently over licensing issues in an operation led by the Ghana Medical and Dental Council and the Police CID, although, it has since opened for operation.

The doctor told Starr FM that he believes some practitioners, who are jealous about his progress, are using a section of the media to sully his reputation.

He said, “I remain undaunted and I will continue to whole-heartedly serve mother Ghana.

“I have absolutely nothing to hide. What I’m doing, not all plastic surgeons can do.

“I’m not operating illegally, but there are issues and these are diabolic actions to frustrate me.

The Florida-trained doctor maintained that some officials of the Council were only bent on destroying his brand without any basis.

He said, “This is sheer jealousy. I’m actually doing what no doctor is really doing and I have advanced the level. I get clients that no doctor is getting and receiving people some doctors are not getting; celebrities, journalists, doctors and international people from the US, UK among others.

“The frosty relationship between the Council and my outfit began in 2012 when I was allegedly cited for unfair advert.

“The Council went ahead to suspend me for three years against natural justice because I was never invited at any hearing.

“I have appealed against the suspension at the Appeal Court hence the Council has no basis to close my facility down.

“I won’t fight anybody. I’ll do my work and will not go chasing people to like me. I have not broken any law and won’t say anything against any colleague doctor.

“I have never had any life-threatening complications here. I’ve never had any death situations or my actions leading to anyone’s death, but I’m not saying it can’t happen.

“However, I can assure you that I resort to the highest safety measures.

“Whatever is going on is a clear orchestrated personal vendetta. I have not referred any client form here to another hospital concerning cosmetic surgery. In any case, I have also treated patients with complications and that is not a crime. Every doctor once in a while confronts issues of complications and none of us is insulated against complications whether you are a professor or whatever.

Contaminated Fuel: BOST fights back, says Minority call for investigation baseless, unfounded



The Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Limited, BOST, may have found its voice at last over the sale of contaminated petroleum product to a private company, as it has lashed out at the Minority in Parliament for calling for a thorough investigation of the transaction.

It Managing Director, Alfred Boateng allegedly sold the five million litres of fuel to the company in a way that is not transparent.

BOST, however said the controversy over the sale of the contaminated fuel is just an attempt to distract its current management from the financial rot left behind by the former Managing Director of the company, Kingsley Kwame Awuah-Darko.

According to BOST, Kwame Awuah-Darko plunged it into about $300 million debt.

The Minority in Parliament, while calling for a thorough investigation of the current MD, also disclosed that the circumstances under which 5 million litres of contaminated fuel was dubiously sold has led to a GHc14.25 million loss to the state.

BOST, in a statement, however insisted that these issues were coming to light to frustrate the attempts by the current Managing Director to address the financial rot at the company.

“The Minority’s assertion that the MD of BOST should be interdicted is baseless and unfounded. It is a political plan to divert the new MD’s attention from dealing with the rot of his predecessor, Mr. Kingsley Kwame Awuah-Darko, which has left BOST with a debt close to $300,000,000″, the statement read in part.

Continuing, BOST noted that the rot included the diversion of GHc 40.5 million of company funds to a fictitious account currently under investigation.

It also listed the award of an overpriced contract of $39 million to construct the BOST head office complex and the award of another overpriced contract of $19 million to construct a pipeline from APD to Akosombo, both of which have been suspended.

Contaminated fuel not yet in the market, NPA assures



The National Petroleum Authority, NPA, has assured Ghanaians that the contaminated fuel the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Limited (BOST) sold to Movenpiina and subsequently to Zup Oil has not hit the market yet.

According to the Acting Chief Executive Officer of the NPA, Alhassan Tampuli, who gave the assurance, the Authority has no reason to believe that some of the contaminated products have ended up in any of the retail outlets.

“Our investigations and preliminary report also indicates that, we don’t have any reason to believe that anything has been put into the market. We are still monitoring.”

It would be recalled that the Minority caucus in Parliament had called for a thorough investigation into the sale of the contaminated fuel and an immediate withdrawal of the product from the market.

However, the NPA boss, while speaking on Okay FM, said: “As at now, we do not have any reason to believe that some of the contaminated products have ended up in any retail outlet. We want to send that message clear to the general public so that the fear and panic out there will be completely debunked.”

On the silence from the NPA on the matter, Tampuli said, the NPA as the regulator is doing its investigation before addressing Ghanaians on the issue with BOST, insisting that his organisation would be the last to speak inspite all the information already available in the public domain.

Speaking further, the NPA boss said with the investigation done so far, it was established that BOST Managing Director, Alfred Boateng sold 5 million litres of contaminated petroleum products to a private company called Movenpinaa.

He however maintained that the 5 million litres of product is still in the custody of BOST except for the 18 trucks that have been moved out; revealing that out of the 18 trucks, 8 of the trucks are still with BOST PD Terminal.

“According to our tracking machines, 10 trucks have moved to a location operated by Zup Oil. We went to Zup Oil premises and we have seen what they have and we have taken a sample and we are yet to confirm the sample. We are also yet to confirm the volumes of products they have in order to ascertain whether or not some of the products have ended up as they are being alleged in the petroleum stations,” he disclosed.

Abronye DC threatens to expose Lord Commey



The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party, NPP, Kwame Baffoe, also known as Abronye DC, has threatened to expose the Director of Operations at the presidency, Lord Commey.

According to the controversial politician, he will give a detailed expose on Lord Commey if he fails to call his boys to order.

The Brong Ahafo youth organizer was reacting to a threat by a member of the Greater Accra Regional Organizers of the NPP, Kwabena Amoako, to expose Abronye DC if he does not stop drawing Lord Commey into his shady deals.

However, Abronye DC, in his response, demanded a retraction and apology of the comment by Kwabena Amoako, including claims that he was not appointed by the Chief of Staff, Frema Osei-Opare as a member of the task force to retrieve stolen state vehicles.

“I am giving him by the close of the day to either retract the statement or I will expose him and Lord Commey. I will start it right from your station”, he said in an interview on Okay FM.

He also clarified that he never said he was working under the authority of the Chief Staff, insisting that he embarked on his vehicle seizure backed by the provisions of Article 41 of the 1992 constitution as a citizen vigilante.

“I have not received any letter anyway but I said I based my work on Article 41 clause F as a citizen vigilante. It is based on my work that the Chief of Staff established the taskforce. I don’t know that Kwabena Amoako but I am daring him to prove those issues or I will blow his cover to affect Lord Commey since he has taken up the job as spokesperson for him. I don’t need to speak on radio or go about seizing cars to be popular. stated.

“People will hear of us tomorrow. If he goes to receive small money and is doing ‘boy boy’ work I will not engage in the kind of things he is doing. I do not beg to eat. I am daring him to open up or I will blow his cover and that of Lord Commey. I will strip him naked and it will affect Lord Commey if he fails to come out and expose me. I will speak my mind because he is rather forcing me to talk regardless of what will happen to the party because he does not know me. No party official can stop me. They see GHS200 and think everything is ok for them”, he fumed.
