Fuel price increase a necessary evil – Ametor

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]



The recent increase in petroleum products is a necessary evil to ensure constant supply, according to government communications team member, Eric Ametor Quarmyne.

He noted that as a people centered government, the Mahama-led administration wants to avert any fuel short in the country.

Petroleum products were on Saturday increased by nine per cent. This means a gallon of petrol which hitherto was sold at 13.70 will now be sold at 15 cedis.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday, Eric Ametor Quarmyne said the increases are for the best interest of Ghanaians.

He said even though it was a difficult decision by government, the increment is a “necessary evil”.

The NDC man explained that the 9 percent increase is the only way to pay for the under recoveries to guarantee availability of petroleum products.

Ametor Quarmyne appealed for calm as government work assiduously to revive the ailing economy.

On the contrary, the Communications Director of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akomea, pooh-poohed Ametor’s claims.

In his view, the increment is the nemesis of the IMF bailout conditionality which debars government from subsidizing petroleum products.

He blamed the Mahama-led administration for the mismanagement of the economy which has plunged the citizenry into abject poverty.

Nana Akomea called on government to be candid with Ghanaians so that they can prepare for the worse.

You increase fuel by 9% and you sit down there to say its of the best interest of Ghanians.
What a country we live in..
If fuel would be increased for us to really benefit from it, then who would complain? But it will be increased and we Ghanians shall not benefit from it..

Seriously??? This economic crisis is really becoming unbearable... What kind of country is our Mother Ghana turning into? Is it the kind that wants good for its citizens or the kind that want its citizen to suffer the consequences of economic mismanagement by the ruling government??? Its really cruel.....

People are struggling to make an ends meet everyday yet things continue to get worse for them due to poor economic management by this Mahama-led administration..... This persistence power outages have prompted the use of generators across the country which has in turn increased the purchase of fuel....

And the worst part of it all, after increasing the prices of petroleum products just recently, the prices have gone up again.... This goes a long way to show that they are making more money out of this "Dumsor" as people continue to buy the fuel to satisfy their needs... Other than that, how will increasing the price of fuel be a necessary evil if not for bailing themselves out of this economy mismanagement ...    

And instead of the government being sincere with ghanaians so that they can prepare for the worse, they keep making dubious statements like this and making promises they cant fulfill... How can increasing the prices of fuel be in the 'best interest' of ghanaians??? God Save Mother Ghana....
