Fuel price reduction good but not enough – Motorists

Google search engine

Some drivers have welcomed the marginal decrease in fuel prices but they say this is not enough.

On Tuesday December 7, Goil reduced fuel prices by 15p.

This followed a directive given to them by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo after a meeting with driver unions on Monday, December 6.

The drivers had protested the escalating fuel prices in the country.

They embarked on a sit down strike on Monday. Passengers were left stranded in most parts of Accra following the strike.

Subsequently, a meeting was called by the President to discuss the way forward.

After the meeting, Mr Akufo-Addo was reported to have issued a directive to the Ghana Oil Company (Goil) to reduce fuel prices.

But speaking to TV3’s Judith Awortwi-Tandoh, some of the drivers noted that the government could have done better than this.

“This is good but it is not enough,” a motorist said.

Another expressed similar concerns.
