Fuel Hikes: COPEC Blames Ofori-Atta, Energy Ministry



The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) has blamed the rising petroleum prices in the county on the lackadaisical attitude of the Ministry of Energy and the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

According to the Chamber, the Finance Minister who should have taken steps in curtailing the rising fuel prices has been adamant even when prices on the International Market was dropping.

“We started talking about the rising price of fuel sometime in March this year. We had indicated the need to relax some of the taxes in the sector in order that we do not push the cost of living beyond the reach of the average Ghanaian. Sadly, nothing has been done.

“I also blame a section of the media, again the Energy Ministry also tries to rationalize and make the justification on why prices are going up,” the Executive Secretary for COPEC – Ghana, Duncan Amoah told Starr FM.
