Minority braces for ‘demo’ against fuel prices

Dominic NitiwulThe Minority in Parliament is spurring Ghanaians to hit the streets to protest against the prices of petroleum products.

According to the Deputy Minority Leader, Dominic Nitiwul, the government was cheating Ghanaians and is about time the citizens took “their destiny into their hands.”

The Minority made up of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) and one member of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) have argued that with the current slump in crude oil prices on the world market, the 10 per cent reduction in fuel prices announced by the government was insufficient.

They have therefore demanded further reduction to reflect the prices on the world market.

“The people of Ghana should know that this government will not respect any law. If the people of Ghana do not take their destiny into their hands and fold their hands and say we cannot do anything, government will continue to sit on your head and sit on your right,” the MP for Bimbila fumed.

“The power of the people is stronger than anything and I am very clear in my mind that the people of Ghana should take their destiny into their own hands. They should be politically active, get involved in stopping government that wants to cheat them”.

He maintained that “the minority will be willing to support the people whether they will go onto the street, demonstration or court the minority to, in fact, lead them.”

He added: “The worse the Minority can do is going on demonstrations and filing motions. But our law protects the strong. When the Speaker decides not to read there is nothing you can do about it”.-starrfmonline
