I'm Unaware of fuel prices because I do not have a car - NPP MP, KT Hammond.

KT Hammond, a member of parliament for Adansi Asokwa and a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has admitted that he is unaware of the current petrol costs in Ghana.

The long-serving politician claims that because he doesn't own a car, he is unaware of how expensive gas is.

At a committee hearing for the censure of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, he said this in response to Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu.

During the committee hearing on the motion of censure against the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, Mr. K.T. responded angrily to the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, when he asked if he had noticed the current fuel prices.

Hammond said “I don’t buy fuel, I don’t have a car so I don’t buy fuel”.

Tuesday morning's public hearing of the committee on the proposal to censure Mr. Ofori Atta got off to a bad start due to disagreements between majority and minority committee members over how to submit evidence.

The committee was established as a result of the Minority's motion to reprimand the Minister for alleged conflicts of interest and subpar performance.

The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, raised several conflict of interest concerns, and the Speaker claims that the formation of a committee will provide the Finance Minister the chance to address them.

“The evidence will be placed before the committee. The Minister will have the opportunity to defend himself. A report will be presented to the House, and we will debate that report,” the Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin said.

The committee, which is co-chaired by NDC MP for Bolgatanga East Dominic Ayine and NPP MP for Adansi-Asokwa KT Hammond, must deliver its findings to the House in seven (7) days.
