Accra, Ghana — The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has ruled out an increase in the price of petrol.
Officials of the NPA, the Chamber of the Bulk Oil Distribution Companies and other stakeholders met this weekend to deliberate on the price review and other matters.
The Public Relations Officer of the NPA, Yaro Kasambata, explained that there would be no increment, at least for the next two weeks.
He indicated that his outfit was monitoring the situation and the public would be duly informed.
“If it will warrant an increment in two weeks and if the situation will remain the same for the next two weeks, we will let you know,” said Kasambata.
The last increase was effected in April.
There were indications the prices would from Tuesday be increased by 20 percent.
