Tackle Dr Bawumia For Lying About The Cedi, I Didn't Tell Cement Companies To Increase The Prices

Bridget Otoo, a popular Ghanaian freelance journalist, media personality, and public relations officer who is currently working for Metro TV as a news anchor has told Ghanaians not to be mad at her for just reporting the increase in cement prices. She asserted that Ghanaians should rather vent their anger at Dr. Bawumia for lying to them about the cedi.

In a post shared on her official Facebook page on late Monday night, she wrote;

"You are not mad at Dr. Bawumia for Lying to you about the cedi? You are not mad about the government letting the cedi cross 10 cedis? That businesses are struggling? You are mad at me for reporting the fact that cement prices have gone up by 7-8 cedis?"

Was I the one who told the cement companies to increase a bag of cement by 7-8 cedis? Or am I the president of Aboboya association who tells them to charge 2-4 cedis for a bag of cement?  Bridget Otoo quizzed.

She asserted that, the people should know where to place their anger because when you go to the filling station or go to buy cement, they don’t ask for your NPP card! 

"Yes cement prices is hitting 80 cedis, and it’s poor leadership that has brought us here! Make your family proud and for once, think for yourself! " She advised.


The comments of Bridget comes as result of some criticisms she got from fans after posting yesterday that fuel prices have increased by 7-8 cedis. She added that people should expect to buy it for GHC 80.

"What's more business killing and more damaging of people's fortunes than DUMSOR for 4 years?" A user wrote.
