The Ministry of Energy says it is hopeful Cabinet will give a favourable response regarding the lifting of the ban on the establishment of new Liquefied Petroleum Gas stations across the country.
The Ghana National Tanker Drivers Association has since Monday, August 1 been on strike over demands for better conditions of service and the demand for government to lift the ban on new LPG stations.
On the back of this, the LPG Marketing Companies have in solidarity also laid down their tools, which have, in turn, left consumers of the product stranded.
In reaction to this, the Public Relations Officer for the Ministry of Energy, Kwesi Obeng-Fosu says the Ministry is hopeful the meeting by Cabinet later today over the ban on the establishment of new LPG stations will yield positive results.
“The Minister stated that the memo on the ban on establishment of new LPG stations has already been sent to cabinet. The Ministry is ready for engagements. Through NPA we have communicated this to them, and we are hopeful that they will show up this time, so we can arrive at a resolution.”
