  • ken-oforiFinance minister-designate Ken Ofori Atta has given the assurance that the Akufo-Addo-led government will not increase electricity bills anytime soon.

    According to him, the move is in fulfillment of the promise the NPP made to Ghanaians during the 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 them.

    “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 breath 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”.
