Dayspring Christian University in collaboration with the Flagstaff House has launched a short course on the safe management of filling stations for government appointees- many of whom are recent owners of fuel filling stations.
A statement from the American university explained that “the course is targeted at the many government officials who have recently acquired filling stations in Accra and other parts of Greater Accra region.”
A source inside government said the course was facilitated by the Flagstaff House after several ministers and deputy ministers expressed fears that their unlicensed and poorly run filling stations may be demolished in the aftermath of last Wednesday’s deadly blaze and the heavy flooding which caused havoc across the capital. Our source was hopeful that the course will help ministers and deputy ministers “to avoid Oko Vanderpuije’s bulldozers.”
The one-day course which will take place at the Flagstaff House after every cabinet meeting will aim to help government appointees to improve safety in and around their new acquired filling stations.
Our source hinted that there are plans to introduce more of such “relevant” courses for government appointees. “We are looking at collaborating with Dayspring Christian University to run another short course in ‘how to effectively launder stolen state funds’ for all appointees and party faithfuls.”
