Gov’t succumbs to pressure, drastically reduces fuel prices

Government has finally reduced the price of fuel after a crunch meeting with stakeholders held at the Jubilee House, the seat of the nations presidency.

This was disclosed by the Public Relations Officer of the Bulk Oil Storage & Transportation Company Ltd. (BOST) in an interview with some media and news outlets.

He explained that, it has become necessary to reduce the prices to meet the demand of the citizens of Ghana.

The whole nation was in a state of surprise when they woke up Monday morning to the sudden increase in of fuel prices across the country.

This they felt was a huge betrayal by government contrary to promises made to reduce fuel prices drastically.

The Bulk Oil Storage & Transportation Company Ltd. (BOST) also posted a communique to that effect and urged all filling stations across the country to abide by the new price of fuel and make the reductions at the pumps.

The seventeen pesewas (17p) per liter has been reduced to nine pesewas (9p) henceforth and this therefore comes very welcome news to all commercial and private vehicle owners.

This new development in a way has proven that indeed government is a listening one. It has also proven that the current social media war with the hashtag #FixTheCountry is already beginning to weigh down heavily on government to wake up from her slumber and make things right for the economy to get back to it’s past glory.
