NPA: Court has not ordered a fuel price reduction
The National Petroleum Authority has rejected
claims by NGO, Development Data that an Appeals
Court has ordered a reduction in fuel prices.
It follows yesterday’s rejection of a stay of
execution of an earlier High Court ruling that the
controversial ex-refinery levy on fuel prices are
illegal and must be removed.
The NGO which has been battling the NPA over the
margins slapped on the price of fuel says the
court had directed a reduction in the pump price
as well as the payment into the Consolidated Fund,
some Eight Hundred million Ghana Cedis that had
accrued from the levy.
But the NPA’s lawyer, Abdul Bassit says though the
court did not grant its application for a stay of
execution, it never gave such orders.
