A member of the communication team of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Brogya Genfi is urging the ruling government to reduce fuel prices.
According to him, the prices of crude oil have dropped significantly on the global market and so the same should reflect in Ghana.
Contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Brogya Genfi asked government to be sensitive to the plight of Ghanaians and "reduce fuel prices by 20%".
Speaking on the same platform and on the same issue, the Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr supported that there will be the need for the authorities in charge to reduce fuel prices.
"The prices need to come down to take away the huge burden and suffering of Ghanaians," he urged.
NDC Calls For Drastic Reduction Of Fuel Prices
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) as a matter of urgency is demanding an immediate and drastic reduction of a minimum of 20% in the pump prices of fuel from the ruling NPP government.
In a statement signed by the National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, he stated that; "the declining prices of crude oil on the international market, coupled with the artificial stability the Ghana cedi appears to be chalking, which is largely due to the Coronavirus outbreak and the injection of the recent $3 billion Eurobond into the economy, should have led to a significant drop in the pump prices of fuel by now."
