No Kerosene Shortage In Ghana - NPA
The National Petroleum Authority (NPA), has debunked all claims of kerosene shortages at various selling points and fuel stations nationwide. According to the Authority, it hasn’t received any indication from the suppliers of the product that there is a shortage. This comes on the back of concerns raised by users of kerosene that there is a
scarcity of the product. In an interview, Head of Planning at NPA, Dominic Aboagye, said there is enough kerosene in stock in the country. We have also cross-checked the information with the importers of the product and the bulk import distribution and export companies, and they all seem to be surprised by this development. According
to them, they haven’t received any order for kerosene, and so I would also like to assure the public that we have enough kerosene in stock. We are all very surprised that there are reports of such shortages, he said. A report said a supervisor at a fuel station at the Nima, Godwin Quaye, said last Sunday that kerosene had been in short
supply for about a month. He also added that many customers who relied on the commodity for domestic activities were disappointed. We have kerosene, but it came in only last week. Before then, there was shortage for about a month, the supervisor said.
