The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is up in the woods laughing at the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) as it struggles over the politics it played with the pricing of petroleum products while in opposition.

According to the NDC, the chickens are coming home to roost.

The NDC maintains that the NPP’s ghost in opposition is coming back to haunt them in government. 

Mr. Victor Quarshie Adonoo, a former Greater Accra Regional Secretary of the NDC made this mockery of the government over the spiraling fuel prices in the country on the ‘Ghana Yensom’ discussion segment of Accra 100.5 FM’s morning show hosted by Kwame Appiah Kubi.

He said the NPP in opposition accused the then governing NDC of being insensitive to the plight of Ghanaians in relation to fuel price margins.

“The NPP in opposition called the NDC all manner of names over fuel pricing and further promised Ghanaians a removal of the taxes on it upon assumption of power.

“Yet taxes on fuel prices under the NPP are skyrocketing leading to all manner of hardships in the country,” he said.

He recalled that the NPP in opposition made a lot of noise about the Energy Sector Levy Act (ESLA) at the time the NDC introduced it to arrest the ‘Dumsor’ menace.

According to him, the NPP has recently increased ESLA by 20 percent. 

Mr. Adonoo said the fuel price has been increased nine times this year from 4.7 to 6.8 per a litre under the watch of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
