HOT STORIES GHANA

Authenticity Is Our Hallmark

Overseeing Editor of the Insight paper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. has said the public authority ought to quit pinning the increasing expense of fuel costs on the Ukraine and Russia stalemate.

Throughout the long term, there have been galactic expansions in fuel costs, subsequently troubling business and confidential drivers and travelers. William Owuraku Aidoo, a Deputy Minister of Energy, said that the new flood in costs of oil based commodities in the nation is because of the contention in Eastern Europe.

As per a distribution on pulse.com.gh, Mr. Aidoo, in a location before Parliament, expressed the public authority’s options are limited as a result of the deregulatory system.

Endorses and blacklists on oil trades from Russia, a significant exporter particularly to Europe, are diminishing accessibility much further and strengthening up tension on fuel costs. Under the ongoing liberated system in Ghana where the public authority isn’t answerable at deciding the costs of oil based commodities, costs on the worldwide market and the deterioration of the Ghana cedi against the US dollar are given straightforwardly to the end-purchaser,” he said.

Likewise, as indicated by the Deputy National Communications Director of the overseeing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Asante Yeboah, Ghana is following the authorizations forced on Russia by some part nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the United Nations (UN).

These authorizations, he noted, make it unthinkable for Ghana to purchase fuel straightforwardly from Russia which is offering at financed costs to different nations.

Talking on a media firm , Kwesi Pratt lashed out at the public authority’s clarification that the Ukraine/Russia war is the reason for the intermittent fuel cost increments.

“At the point when you go to Western Europe, it has a fuel emergency which is deliberate. They have put sanctions on Russia. They are the ones saying we can’t pay you assuming you bring the fuel which has brought about this emergency. Other underdeveloped nations are as yet purchasing their fuel from Russia. They are getting it at a sponsored rate; a rate underneath the cost at the Ukrainian conflict.

All in all, on the off chance that we believe the fuel cost should diminish, for what reason might different nations at any point purchase petroleum from Russia at a moderate cost however we can’t?… Did I advise you to join the assent system? In the event that you are an administration and America says we ought to endorse Russia and you know when you endorse Russia, you will endure however you do it in any case, what are you referring to?… You decide to follow America and you are enduring, then return to advise us to fault Ukraine/Russia war, would you say you are not the person who caused it? Quit expressing these things!” he seethed.

He asked why the Government of Ghana isn’t accepting fuel straightforwardly from Russia when the Eastern European country is selling her gas at a sponsored cost.

Any Ghanaian who will strikingly highlight oneself that the petrol issue is brought about by Ukraine/Russia war could do without the public authority. Then, at that point, they need to fall the public authority, as a matter of fact. In this time of edification, what nation purchases fuel at the spot market cost today? This Ukraine/Russia commotion, what is influencing is the spot market cost… So, spare our ears with this Ukraine/Russia war since you are shaming the public authority.”

He noticed that the Akufo-Addo government can’t fault Ukraine and Russia’s contention on the grounds that the nation is buying fuel at the spot market cost. As though to depict the public authority as bumbling, he focused on it is just an “awkward and wasteful government that will purchase fuel at spot market cost”.
