Dr Nduom Paa Kwesi in a Facebook post on Saturday questioned why the premix fuel can’t be sold at fuel stations just like petrol and diesel for fishermen to purchase.

He said: "Why can’t a fisherman take his/her money to a petrol station and buy pre-mix fuel without fuss? Why allow greedy politicians to mess around with the livelihood of the fishermen who are already struggling to make a living? I come from a fishing town, Elmina and I know what I am talking about.

"The government should find a better, direct way to help fishermen. Including safeguarding our part of the ocean from illegal fishing by both locals and foreigners."

His comments come after Accra-based Citi FM reported over 200 cases of premix fuel diversion which has negatively impacted the work of fishermen.
