Bawumia unveils fuel monitoring system to halt illegal activities in downstream petroleum sector
Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Wednesday, March 7, 2021 launched the National Retail Outlet Fuel Monitoring System to sanitise the supply and distribution of petroleum products in the country. Vice President Bawumia in January, last year, also launched the Electronic Control Cargo Tracking System to track and halt illicit activities in the distribution of petroleum products by oil tankers. The new fuel monitoring system innovation would help minimize the tax variance between the tax due from the NPA's official sales and the reported collections/receipts reported by the GRA. Vice President Bawumia gave the assurance that government would continue to create the enabling environment for businesses to thrive and help the consuming public to receive sufficient petroleum products at all times, and ensure quality petroleum products at competitive prices.
