The Member of Parliament for Akim Swedru Kennedy Osei Nyarko has asked Ghanaians not to lose sight of the dynamics in the pricing of fuel at the global level.
He said although the public have all the right to complain over fuel prices, they should also be blind about the global happenings.
Ghanaians especially car owners have complained bitterly of the rate at which fuel keeps increasing
The cost per litre of fuel has crossed the Ghc 8 mark with some selling it at Ghc10.
In his reaction, the legislator stated that “In as much as we are calling on government to do something about the rising fuel prices at the pumps we shouldn’t also be blind about the global happenings. We shouldn’t forget we all go to the same global market to buy our oil.
My checks this morning in some other African countries shows that we are not doing bad when it comes to the prices of fuel at the pumps but we still think Government should do something little to cushion the consumers.”
He also provided a list of prices across the globe saying: Prices as at this morning in the following countries;
