The increase in fuel prices certainly may have forced many Ghanaians to make some lifestyle changes including commuting by bicycle.
For rapper Sarkodie, commuting from one place to another in vehicles might just be a thing of the past.
In a post on Twitter, the rapper noted that he plans to stay indoors and communicate with the world virtually when he returns from his Dubai trip.
“Staying indoor when I touch down GH … Zoom calls only … #FuelPrices,” he wrote on Tuesday.
This comes after experts hinted at another fuel price increase on Wednesday, March 16.
Before March 1, 2022, petrol and diesel traded at an average GH¢7.50 per litre, representing an increment of 8.6 per cent in the just-ended pricing window.
Reacting to Sarkodie’s post, some fans shared the rapper’s sentiment while others urged him to use his influence to communicate with the government on finding a solution to the price hikes.

Meanwhile, Prices of petroleum products will from Wednesday, March 16 experience a significant surge as consumers are expected to pay ¢11 per litre.
The Bulk Oil Distributors has blamed the situation on the volatility on the market as well as the rising cost of crude on the international market.
According to the Chief Executive, Senyo Hosi, the cedi which is depreciating among other major trading currencies is also a factor for the rise in the price of the commodities.
“This is not really with crude but with products on a metric tonne basis. You’re actually breaking the pair and likely breaking 11 as well, subject to which product and how the OMCs want to add some margins on their current prices.
“What you see from the OMCs publication is quite reflective of what the market situation is and I think a bit chunk of it has to do with some of the onset increase around our current cedi issues,” he said.
