Fishermen will enjoy a direct supply of premix fuel should the National Democratic Congress (NDC) come into power in 2021.
The flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama made this promise while touring the Oti Region.
He also promised to fix all the challenges that cause the shortage of the premix fuel in Ghana by ensuring the direct supply of the fuel to fishers.

Mr. Mahama allged that President Akufo-Addo has created middle men in the supply chain of the premix fuel.
He gave the assurance of removing all these middle men when he addressed various meetings with chiefs, organised groups and members and supporters of the NDC at Old Chantan, Bomoden, Damanko, Siibi and Kpassa as part of his three-day tour of the Oti Region.
The NDC flagbearer promised that the new NDC government will also ensure the acquisition and supply of fishing inputs such as outboard motors and fishing nets on credit to fishers.
This, he said, will ease the financial burden on fishers and enable them to work in peace.
On agriculture, Mr Mahama announced the setting up of farmers mechanisation centers across all districts to facilitate the work of farmers.
“So, if you are a farmer and you want to weed your farm, you will go the farmers service centre and the machine will come and weed for you. The farmer will only pay for the cost of the service after harvesting is over and the produce has been marketed,” he explained.
Mr Mahama noted the general hardship in the country due to the mismanagement of the economy by the Akufo-Addo government, adding the next NDC government will work hard to provide jobs and reduce the high cost of living in the country.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the biggest opposition party in Ghana, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has described the incumbent New Patriotic Party’s manifesto as uninspiring and recycled.
The Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Otokunor, told Citi News, the NPP has only repackaged their failed promises to Ghanaians to lure them for votes come December 7.
He added that the NPP manifesto is also full of promises which are not doable and feasible in this current Ghana.
