‘NPP, NDC Are All Guilty of Fuel Politics’ – Deputy Finance Minister

Deputy Finance Minister, John Kumah has stated that both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) must take the blame for politicising issues pertaining to fuel in the country.


Speaking to Animwaa Anim-Addo on the AM Show on Tuesday, December 7, Mr Kumah argued that the NDC cannot fault the government for the recent trends in petroleum prices because they are equally guilty.

“That’s a very difficult issue and I am happy that when it comes to fuel, NPP and NDC are all guilty of fuel politics. Unfortunately, if you look at the global trend, and here [when] we talk about COVID-19, our friends disagree but this is actually what is happening.”

“America has announced that they were going into their reserve to also supply fuel to bring down the prices. These are things that usually, as a country, you may not have control over and once we have all submitted to deregulation and say that if it goes up, it goes up; if it comes down, it comes down, these are some of the prices we pay,” he explained.
