Scores of angry fishermen in the Gomoa West District of the Central Region have threatened to storm the Flagstaff House naked if the Ministry of Fisheries fails to provide them with the premix fuel.
Premix fuel has been in short supply in more than five fishing communities in Central Region for two weeks now.
Most of the fishermen have to struggle to get some of the premix fuel before they could go fishing.
Some of them have told Accra-based Adom FM that the situation is affecting their business and livelihood.
“Like three months the premix fuel hasn’t come through, all the promises have been reluctant to be fulfilled. We are pleading with Nana Akufo-Addo to step in otherwise we will go naked at flagstaff house. We are hungry”.
“We want monies to take care of our family. The premix fuel should come through. We are suffering. We will put our penis on the line. We will go on a naked demonstration if our needs are not recognized…” one of the fishermen complained.
They have, therefore, asked the authorities to increase the supply of the fuel to the beaches to enable them get enough fuel for their fishing activities.
