Controversial musician Kwame Asare Obeng aka Kwame A-Plus has said the rise in fuel prices recently have exposed the weak fundamentals of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Reports reveal that some fuel stations increased their prices to over GH¢5.1 per liter. A liter of diesel and petrol are being sold at GH¢5.18 pesewas; and GH¢5.14 pesewas, respectively.
President Akufo-Addo prior to the 2016 elections has described the decision by the NDC government to increase the prices of petroleum products, in the midst of the ongoing, crippling energy crisis, as insensitive.
Candidate Akufo-Addo said at a time when Ghanaians are staggering under the effects of three years of ‘dumsor’ and resorting to the use of generators to produce power the last thing a government will do is to increase fuel prices.
He further revealed that the development means there is no end to the difficulties of the ordinary Ghanaian.
Vice President Alhaji Dr. Bawumia has given an account of the first 100 days in office of the NPP government.
Vice President Alhaji Dr. Bawumia indicated that the government has been able to ‘arrest’ the fall of the cedi as well as made some 103 achievements.
The Vice President said the exponential decrease of the cedi has been arrested and locked, with the keys given to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) for safekeeping.
Commenting on the rise in fuel prices, Kwame A-Plus in a Facebook post said petroleum prices will expose the government when the cedi breaks jail.
“When the arrested cedi breaks jail, petroleum prices will expose you!!! I’m laughing like a killer,” while sharing a photo to support his claims of the increase in fuel,” Kwame A-Plus said in a Facebook post.
