Ningo-Prampram MP, Sam George

The MP for Ningo-Prampram, Samuel Nartey George says the current state of the economy is as a results of the decision taken by Ghanaians on December 7, 2020.

In a tweet on Thursday, February 3, Mr Nartey George said, “Elections have consequences. 4 more to increase more”.

Eligible Ghanaians on December 7, 2020, went to the polls and voted for the 2020 Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo as President-elect. The governing NPP campaigned with the motto “4MoreToDoMore.”

In his tweet, Samuel Nartey George compared the cost of fuel under the then Mahama-led administration in 2015 and the current Akufo-Addo-led government.

Referencing infographics that compared the cost of GOIL’s Super XP and Diesel XP, the MP suggested that citizens are worse off under the governing NPP.

Per the infographics, the cost of Super XP and Diesel XP on October 5, 2015, stood at GH₵2.888 and GH₵2.779 respectively. But as of February 3, this year, Super XP RON 95 and Diesel XP cost GH₵7.300.

Analysis of the figures shows that within 7 years, GOIL’s fuel prices have increased by almost 152.4 per cent.
