Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketing Companies (LPGMCs) have distanced themselves from the ongoing nationwide strike by the Ghana Liquefied Petroleum Gas Operators Association (GLIPGOA).

A statement issued by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) said LPGMCs are not part of the strike action.

“They are still committee members of the Implementation Committee.”

It said members of the LPG Tanker Drivers Union are ready to load all orders placed by LPGMCs.

It said all GOIL LPG stations across the country are not part of the strike, adding that all Hills Oil LPG stations (market leader) across the country are also not part of the strike.

“Consumers must note that the government will prioritise their health, safety and security over any and all considerations, and accordingly they are to bear with the situation and look out for stations that are still in operation. Torgbui Adaku and his group have made this strike a war between their safety and their profit, and we find it easier to err on the side of safety and security.”

Switch to alternatives

Meanwhile, the NPA has urged LPG consumers to consider resorting to other substitutes to LPG in the meantime, pending the full implementation of the CRM.

It added that electricity tariffs had been reduced by government and that should create an incentive to switch to electricity.”

“In the meantime, we will inform the public of areas where they can locate stations that stand in solidarity with their health, safety and security.

Warning

“Much as we are not going to interfere with the strike action, we want to serve notice that members of GLIGPOA should resist the temptation to stop those, who have seen the blackmail and therefore not supportive of the strike from carrying on their legitimate business.

“The security agencies will deal ruthlessly with such groups and individuals who try to stop others.”
