If you’re broke and can’t fuel your 4×4 cars, park them – Osafo Maafo to Ghanaians

27th May 2022

Senior Presidential Advisor Yaw Osafo Maafo has advised Ghanaians to learn to be economical in these hard times.

He argues that there is no way government can reduce the prices of petroleum products in the country so it’s imperative that the people learn to economize.

Osafo Maafo was speaking to Beatrice Adu when he made this known.

“There is no way the economy can provide subsidy to fuel. it’s a commodity we don’t produce, others produce and we buy. Therefore, we should at best buy it at the cost price,” he said in an interview on Accra-based Asaase Radio.

He continued “The economy cannot and I repeat, cannot stomach [fuel] subsidy. People should pay for it. You see, there are so many vehicles on the road and some of them need not be there.

If you can’t afford to drive a 4-wheel drive, then you must not use it. We must now begin to look at situations of economic use of energy,” Osafo-Maafo said.
