The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, has served notice to leading suppliers in steel and cement products not to fall for the propaganda of the National Democratic Congress by increasing the cost of their products to ward off potential buyers.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, claims he has picked up intelligence that some of the cement suppliers intend to increase the cost of the building material by GHC2.5 which shouldn’t be the case.
“I have my ears on the ground and I have been told that from tomorrow, some of the dealers would be adding GHC2.5 to the price of cement. This is a bad move and shouldn’t happen. Some politicians are behind this move and it doesn’t augur well for the nation. Already they have added GHC 1 to the product and want to move it GHC2.5. It would be a total rip-off and we can’t have this situation developing”, he said.
