The acting Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has been appointed to serve as Chairman of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Frederick Armah Blay, popularly called Freddie Blay, is a Ghanaian lawyer and a politician.

He was a Member of Parliament for Ellembele for years, and served as the First Deputy Speaker in the Fourth Parliament of Ghana.

He lost his seat in the general elections held on 7 December 2008 to Armah Kofi Buah of the NDC.

He was a member of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), but resigned to join the New Patriotic Party[1] after being criticized by some CPP stalwarts for not campaigning for the CPP flagbearer Paa Kwesi Nduom, instead endorsing the NPP’s presidential candidate then, Nana Akufo-Addo.
