Akufo-Addo to ease land border restrictions, tackle fuel price hikes – Oppong Nkrumah

    President Nana Akufo-Addo has been in a series of meetings concerning the easing of Ghana’s land borders to open the country up again for more trade, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has announced.

    The borders have remained closed for the past two years since the COVID pandemic hit Ghana.

    The Minority in Parliament recently called for the opening of the borders.

    Apart from the border issue, the President, according to Mr Nkrumah, has also been holding meetings on the consistent fuel price hikes in Ghana.

    While petrol is almost selling at GHS10 per litre at the pumps, diesel is nearing GHS11.

    Along with the rise in fuel prices, transport fares have also been rising.

    Commercial drivers are still clamouring for further fare increases in light of the most recent fuel price hikes.

    Mr Oppong Nkrumah said in a tweet: “Yesterday and today @NAkufoAddo has been engaged in meetings in preparation to announce the easing of restrictions at our borders and tackling escalating fuel prices”.
