Yesterday COPEC released a statement telling how fuel prices will be increased. In the statement released they cited the high prices of oil that has shot up as a result of the Ukraine Russia war. Well, today, Wednesday, March 16, 2022 some Fuel companies have made the new prices reflect on their stands. Diesel which was going for a little over 8 cedis has now shot to 10.80 cedis according to Total.
In a post on Facebook, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, a former Deputy Minister of Communications has dropped the new prices of fuel causing massive reactions from Ghanaians. Many of the reactions looked at the performance of the President Akufo-Addo government which many feel has failed to improve the living standards of Ghanaians.
Some comments asked where the ‘economic messiah’ Bawumia was in the face of these soaring fuel prices. Commercial and private transportation operators are yet to reveal their own fares and it is expected that the new prices will draw a lot of heated debates. Check out some of the reactions.
