2017 Budget: No Increment in ECG and Fuel

Ken Ofori Atta, Finance Minister – Designate has given the assurance that the Akuffo-Addo-led government will not increase electricity bills anytime soon.

This he said, is in fulfillment of the promise the NPP made to Ghanaians during the 2016 electioneering.

Speaking to the media after his nomination was announced by the President, finance expert said the government will work to justify the confidence Ghanaians have reposed in the Akuffo-Addo, NPP-led government.

“We will have to examine our energy mix and I think we’re likely going to get a little bit more from gas which will then help in giving us a chance to breathe from that, so I don’t expect us to be increasing prices of fuel and ECG. We are looking actually to see how we can as we promised, bring some relief to Ghanaians”.
