“Will things get better?” – Sammy Gyamfi quizzes Bawumia over fuel prices

The National Communications Director of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has descended heavily on Vice President Bawumia who is the head of the Economic Management Team (EMT) over the rising fuel prices in Ghana.

Fuel prices in some filling stations including Total Energies, have gone to almost GH¢16 per litre on Monday October 17.

Total Energies is selling diesel at GH¢15.99 per litre and selling petrol at GH¢13.10 per litre.

Sammy Gyamfi in a tweet said “A gallon of diesel is selling at GHS72, while the dollar is selling at GHS12.5. Cost of living keeps soaring but the braggadocious talkative and chairman of the EMT @MBawumia who was once projected as the answer to all our economic woes has gone awol. Will things ever get better?”

Energy think tank the Institute of Energy Security (IES) projected that fuel prices would go higher following the fall of the Cedi against the Dollar.

The energy think tank’s analysis of the foreign exchange (Forex) market over the last two week revealed a further depreciation of the Cedi against the US Dollar.

The Ghana Cedi depreciated by a significant 2.5% from the previous rate of ¢10.53 to the current rate of Gh¢10.89, to the US Dollar.
