Another nationwide demonstration is in the pipeline and would soon explode in the face of government if fuel prices are not reduced.

Pressure group Movement for Change (MFC) is starting a campaign to force the Government to reduce the price of fuel.

In a statement issued Wednesday and signed by its Chairman Dr. Anthony Nsiah Asare, the group said it will embark on a series of demonstration to push the Mahama administration to reduce the price of fuel.

“At a time when world crude prices have fallen by historic margins, it still mind boggling that the NDC government has remained adamant and insensitive to the many calls for the drastic reduction in prices of petroleum products.”

“The Trades Union Congress (TUC), Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA), Ghana Real Estates Development Association (GREDA), Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), political parties, civil society organisations, as well as ordinary Ghanaians have called for a drastic reduction of fuel prices in consonance with the Automatic Price Adjustment Formula. They have asked government to, as a matter of urgency reduce fuel prices, since it is an alternative source of power generation for them,” MFC said.

Meanwhile, head of communications for movement, Nana Boakye, in an interview with Peace FM stated that looking at the way the power crisis is crippling private businesses that depend on fuel for production

“Looking at the way the power crisis is killing business, the idle thing for government to do is to reduce fuel prices for companies who depend on it to be able to function. On the international market, it has been reduced and this gives the government no reason to maintain the current prices”, he said.
