An Accra High Court has refused an interlocutory application filed by T- Turbo Energy asking the court to quash the National Petroleum Authority, NPA, decision to revoke its license.
The company was earlier given license to operate a gas filling station and distribute same but safety concerns later prompted the NPA to revoke its license.
The company not being satisfied with the decision filed an application in court asking that their operations be restored by NPA.
The court presided over by Justice Kweku Ackaah-Boafo therefore ruled that a gas filling station situated between two schools Tema International School and Tema Rich School cannot be allowed to operate.
The court was of the view that the safety of the over 800 school population and the residents at Afariwa in Tema are at risk.
Justice Ackaah-Boafo ruled that NPA as the authoritative body acted rightfully since it would be blamed for any future disasters.
