The Fuel Prices Are Breaking The 8 - Ghanaians React After This Photo Surfaces Online

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) after winning the 2020 Presidential elections stated that their next Presidential Candidate will break the 8-year presidential term in the 2024 presidential election. This is because they believe they have put in a lot of effort since taking power in 2017 and deserve to eliminate Ghana's eight-year presidential term limit.

The fuel prices have recently been increased and most Ghanaians cannot keep quiet about it. Watching the picture below, you can see that petrol prices have been increased again as petrol and diesel prices hit GHS 7.99 per litre. It is left with just 1 pesewa and the price of fuel will be GHS 8.00 per litre. These fuel prices seem to take place yesterday, Wednesday, 16th February 2022 around 7:59 pm.

Some Ghanaians after coming across this picture stated that the fuel prices are breaking the 8, meaning in a few days to come, the price per litre of fuel will definitely reach GHS 8.00. They were comparing NPP's breaking the '8' in the Presidential race to the fuel prices breaking the '8'. As at the time former President John Dramani Mahama was leaving office in 2016, fuel prices were around GHS 3.67 per litre but now the prices are GHS 7.99 per litre.

In view of this, some Ghanaians asked: Is this what the NPP means by breaking the 8? Are they sure they can break the 8-year presidential term with these increments of fuel prices? Others stated that they have regretted voting for the NPP because everything in the country seems to see a high rate of increment these days.

Check out some of the reactions from some Ghanaians below:
