The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has described the recent tariff increases in utility as a sign of “insensitivity of government in matters affecting the wellbeing of the people.”
“Money does not solve all problems-thinking does” the statement said.
In a statement issued by the party’s Deputy Director of Communication, Ernest Afram, the CPP called on government to enact policies that “will not only solve the problem at hand, but also prevent the recurrence of such in the future.”
According to them, since the people of Ghana cannot continue to shoulder the consequences of the mediocre policies of government, there is need for “government to intervene and reverse the recent tariff increases to levels in sync with the people’s ability to pay.”
The statement further stated that “a comprehensive approach to addressing our energy needs will not only solve the problem at hand, but also prevent the recurrence of such in the future.
The CPP further tasked government to “work studiously to complete work on the Atuabu Gas plant adding that “if the government had prioritized work on the completion of the Atuabu Gas plant, most of the power generation problems we were confronted with in the early parts of the year would have been avoided.”
