The Management of Springfield, a reputable Oil and Gas company, has expressed its unreserved displeasure concerning some stories currently being circulated about the company and its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. Kevin Okyere by a newspaper based in Ghana; The New Statesman.

The firm in a statement said, “We view with great concern rumours emanating from the segment of the social, print and electronic media that our company is one of those involved in unwholesome activities in the Oil and Gas industry in Nigeria. For nearly a decade, we have worked with reputable companies such as Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), National Petroleum Authority (NPA) and Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) within the Gulf of Guinea and internationally, BP, Total, Chevron, Glencore, Aker Solutions, et cetera.”

“In all these dealings,” it noted, “we have abided by all industry regulations and successfully met all our financial obligations to these partners. Our Chief Executive, Kevin Okyere, continues to enjoy his reputation as one of the youngest industry CEO’s around the world. We state categorically that these published rumours are false, baseless and calculated to do untold harm to our business interests and undermine our hard-won reputation.”

Stressing the determination of the company to remain a major player in the industry, it stated that, “We will continue to play our part in the development of the oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Guinea to the benefit of our people.”

And to exonerate itself the management informed of its decision to seek redress in court, “

 We have instructed our lawyers to file lawsuits against The New Statesman, The Al-Hajj, Herald and The Republic for participating in the publication of falsehood against our CEO, Kevin Okyere and our company relating to our businesses in Ghana and Nigeria. We would like to use this opportunity to thank those media houses who have asked for our own side of the story before publishing. In the same vein, we will robustly defend our companies’ reputation against any media or persons who will attempt to tarnish it.”
