Some workers of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) have laid wreaths with ‘RIP’ inscriptions at the entrance of BOST to welcome the company’s, Chief Executive Officer, Mr Edwin Provencal.
The identities of the workers behind the act have not been discovered but sources tell Starr News that some workers who are against the CEO’s move to fight corrupt activities may have placed the wreaths to scare him.
The mostly white and red wreaths bore inscriptions such as “RIP Mr Edwin Provencal”, “Rest well”, among others.
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.
