Amid the recent increment in the prices of various petroleum products which took effect on September 2, 2019, the prices of other goods and services have been affected immensely.

Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) were directed by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) to apply revised energy levies which saw petrol and diesel increased by ¢0.20.

Almost all other goods and services have been affected since the directive took effect.

The latest service to feel the blow of price hikes is public toilets and this has stirred concerns from Ghanaians.

A public service notice circulating on social media indicates that the fee per user for attending to nature’s call at a public toilet would be increased from GHC0.50 to GHC1.00.

Some Ghanaians have shared mixed reactions after YEN.com.gh posted the photo on Facebook.

Abraham Wilson was sarcastic with his response when he said: ''If they want let them increase it to 100.00 by the grace of God we will still manage to pay.''

He called on ''God [to] help MOTHER GHANA.''

Eric Hovi had a major concern and quizzed: ''Eiii what about when one have a running stomach or decided to use a laxative to clean his or her stomach,this NPP administration need more intensive prayers to survive hmmm.''

Richard expressed genuine concern about the impact of the increment in public toilet fees.

''With this increment I pity our beaches,'' Richard Lamptey, said in reaction.

Christopher Hill wrote: ''Aren't they supposed to reduce it?? Here is the case we used to eat twice a day after the increment we reduced eating to once a day n still they increase toilet fee, adai.''

Others also shared mixed reactions.
