Mr. Amoah Samuel said, the President of the republic of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo speech on the May day celebration clearly showed that the government is not willing to reduce the fuel price.

The president at this year’s May Day celebration at the Independence Square in Accra, stated that “At this time, when we are determined to expand Government revenues to increase our capacity to finance our own development, can we afford to reduce tax revenues by four billion cedi’s (GH¢4 billion)?.
