Ras Mubarak vows to ride a bicycle to Parliament in protest against fuel price increase

Ras Mubarak, who is a Member of Parliament for Kumbungu says he will ride a bicycle to Parliament today in protest of the high cost of fuel and the economic conditions under the Akufo-Addo administration.


Ras Mubarak has been one of the MP's who has voiced his displeasure at the continued increase of fuel prices in the country.

“Fuel prices keep going up. Prices of commodities keep going up and there seems to be no end in sight in respect of the suffering that ordinary Ghanaians who do not have free fuel and free vehicles maintained by the state,” he told Citi news.

The MP said he expects some legislators and Ghanaians in general, to join him in his protest.

“The honourable Dr. Clement Apaak has indicated he is interested in joining the cause, and I am sure once we get started, we might have not only members of Parliament but ordinary Ghanaians who are feeling the pressure joining in the expression of frustration.”

On how long this protest will go, he said “let’s get started and see how things unravel. If there is the need to sustain it as long as can be, I will be happy to sustain it.”

Mr. Mubarak is also killing two birds with one stone as he says the deteriorating state of the environment is also of concern to him.
Seems his words will now be put into action as he has posted his intention on facebook.
