LPG marketers on a nationwide strike against gas re-circulation module

- All LPG stations have been shut to the public

- This begins an indefinite strike action by operators who are against the gas re-circulation module

Operators of LPG across the country have shut down their stations as they protest against the gas recirculation module.

This module has been rejected by the association as they claim it will shoot up the cost of LPG in the country.

National organizer of the LPG operators association, Nana-Aba Berima Collins has told Joy FM that the strike is indefinite. This means there is no exact time to which they will be reopening their stations.

Meanwhile, government has criticized the operators for the decision to shut down their stations. A letter from the energy ministry states that these operators have been given the chance to make known their grievances hence the surprise of having to embark on a strike.

With this strike action, it is expected that hundreds of Ghanaian households who rely heavily on LPG for the preparation of meals would have to resort to the traditional use of Charcoal of the use of electric cookers.
