Concerned Premix committee of Cape Coast

The Concerned Premix committee of Cape Coast, a group of fishermen who say they are fighting the artificial shortage of premix in the Central Region have held a press forum demanding the Central Regional minister, Kwamena Duncan to render accounts on proceeds from the sale of premix in the region.

They say the account rendering should cover monies accrued during the period of the Interim Pre-mix Committee to the present substantive committee.

Pending the amendment of the policy that governs premix fuel sale and its fund allocation, the sector ministry directed all proceeds to be deposited in a special account but the Central Region went contrary to this directive.
