The Ghana Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors (CBOD) has hosted this year’s media soiree, inviting representatives from various media houses across the country.

The cocktail event aimed to establish a strong and collaborative relationship between the Chamber and the media, focused on ensuring accurate and timely information reaches Ghanaians.

Dr. Patrick Ofori, CEO of CBOD, emphasised the critical role the media plays in disseminating information.

“It’s paramount that Ghanaians receive the right information on time,” he stressed.

He highlighted the downstream petroleum sector’s crucial role in the nation’s economy, explaining how fuel prices impact various sectors and, ultimately, the lives of ordinary Ghanaians.

To bridge the knowledge gap and ensure accurate reporting, the chamber announced plans to organise workshops for journalists.

The Media Soiree served as a platform for open dialogue and collaboration.

By fostering a stronger relationship with the media, the CBOD aims to ensure Ghanaians have access to accurate and timely information regarding the downstream petroleum sector, empowering them to make informed decisions.
