Chamber of Petroleum Consumers-Ghana has indicated that it will stage a demonstration tomorrow to register their displeasure against the frequent increase of petroleum products. The demonstration is expected to start at 7am prompt. In a press release dated 6th February 2018, and signed by its Executive Secretary, Duncan Amoah, CPC said for the past 5 months, most pumps has seen a persistent increase in the price of petroleum products in Ghana with the corresponding hardships these increases often come with.
The Chamber said this has caused them to stage a peaceful street protest and demonstration together with several other Transport unions across the country and the general workforce with the Industrial and Commercial Workers Union.
The walk will start from the Obra Spot at Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra through some major streets to the Accra Arts Centre, where another petition will be submitted to both the Ministries of Energy and Finance, The Parliament of Ghana, and the Office of the President.
CPC indicated that the excuses must end, Taxes must be reduced to bring some reductions and stability in prices. It urged the public and everyone who feels the pressures of these incessant increases in fuel prices to join the peaceful expression of hardship in their pockets.
