The Vice Chairman of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers Association (LPGMA), Gabriel Kumi has assured Ghanaians there will not be shortage of LPG during this festive season.
According to him, there will be LPG in all the various stations across the country for consumers, stressing that prices will also remain stable.
He gave the assurance yesterday during an interview on an Accra-based radio station.
The association earlier threatened to embark on strike if government does not consider various concerns raised by their members ahead of the implementation of the LPG recirculation policy.
They asked the ministry to redefine their role, and also to reconsider the timing for the role out of the policy as the one-year period given is too short.
Meanwhile, following a meeting with the Energy Ministry and other stakeholders on Wednesday, it was agreed that the concerns of the Association would be addressed by the LPG Recirculation Policy Implementation Committee.
Mr. Gabriel Kumi expressed appreciation to government for considering the various concerns they raised.
“We will go back to the Implementation committee and meet with the NPA to ensure our concerns are addressed. With government’s assurance, we believe that our concerns will be addressed. Our members lose money anytime they embark on strike actions and so they were happy government had agreed to consider the various concerns they had raised”, he stressed.
