One of the gurus in the petroleum industry, Alhaji Yussif Tahiru has asked government to privatize the sale of premix fuel in Ghana.
Alhaji Yussif Tahiru expressed that the privatization of the sale of premix fuel will help curtail the diversion of the product.
He suggested that National Petroleum Authority should issue a license to any individual who want to sell premix fuel
He added that those petroleum filling stations within the reach of the fishermen should also be given the opportunity to sell the premix.
“The fuel filling stations near and in the coastal communities must be allowed to sell premix fuel”, he said.
He further charged National Petroleum Authority to intensify it control mechanism to ensure that people do not divert the premix fuel.
Alhaji Yussif Tahiru expressed worry about the politicization of the distribution of the premix fuel, adding, “the committee in charge of the premix fuel should not be influenced by politicians”.
