COPEC, Transport Unions To Hit Streets Tomorrow Over Fuel Increase

The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers-Ghana and some transport unions have served a notice to hit some streets on Wednesday February 7, 2018 in Accra against the Akufo-Addo’s government over incessant increase in petroleum products.

The walk will start from the Obra Spot at Kwame Nkrumah Circle through to some major streets.

They will later submit another petition to both the Ministries of Energy and Finance, Parliament and the Office of the President.

A statement signed by the Executive Secretary of COPEC-Ghana said, ‘We entreat the public and everyone who feels the pressures of these incessant increases in fuel prices to join this peaceful expression of uneasiness in our pockets. The excuses must indeed end, the Taxes must be reduced to bring some reductions and stability in prices’.

COPEC-Ghana stated that several attempts to draw the attention of authorities to review the pricing formula has equally not yielded any results.

Petroleum products have been increased within a spate of 5 months with the latest being Tuesday.
