Ghanaians have decried the recent rises in the prices of petrol and diesel. The increase comes to deepen the woes of Ghanaians who have already been told that government payroll is full. According to other Ghanaians, the increase is a reflection of the bad systems put in place by the government.
The National Communications Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi has stormed the studio of JoyNews to defend the NDC's fuel price proposals. The fast rising politician is of the viewmen that, the proposals presented by his party would save the general public from the astronomical rise in the prices of petrol and diesel. Point by point, Sammy Gyamfi brilliantly silenced the critics of the proposals after making price comparisons between Mahama and Akuffo-Addo's government.
Sammy Gyamfi has expressed disappointment in the failure of the Vice President, Dr. Bawumia to arrest the cedi as promised during the NPP’s electioneering campaign. The government takes delight in inflicting pain and sufferings on the average Ghanaian, he added.
He added that, the surveys conducted by his NDC indicates that the prices of petrol and diesel has increased 9 times, which even falls short of the Joynews analysis of a 13 time increase. He explained that NPP would go down in history as the worst manager of Ghana’s economy.
Speaking further, he gave clarification on the proposal presented by the NDC calling on the lgovernment to implement them to save the economy. Sammy Gyamfi is of adamant conviction that the erstwhile Mahama administration performed better than any government in the 4th Republic. He made the following statement in an interview with Raymond Acquah on JoyNews Upfront show.
