The Northern Region Sachet Water Association has given notice of plans to increase the price per bag of water effective tomorrow, Thursday, November 4, 2021, owning to the high cost of production.
The Regional Chairman Salifu Nuhu speaking on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm were running at lost due to the high cost of production.
He said if they fail to increase the price, they risk having their businesses collapse.
He admonished the residents to accept the new price for sachet water because it is nothing new.
He noted that the price was increased at the national level but those in the Northern Region did not implement it.
He said we are just implementing what had already taken place at the national level.
He disclosed stakeholder engagement had already gone on, and their customers and other stakeholders have accepted the increment.
