The Minister of Energy and Member of Parliament for Manhyia South, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, popularly known as NAPO, has hinted that fuel prices would continue to drop.
According to him, the further drop would make life more comfortable for Ghanaians and put to shame people who were happy over high prices for their own political purposes.
“Petroleum prices will continue to go down more to reduce the burden on Ghanaians. If you are relying on higher petrol prices to win power then you have failed,” he said.
The legislator was speaking during the graduation ceremony of 47 artisans, whom he sponsored to be trained for free.
Selected from all the six electoral areas in Manhyia South, the artisans were trained in fashion design, hair technology and make-up artistry by experts for three months.
The programme, dubbed the ‘Youth Empowerment Project,’ is his brainchild with support from the College of Beauty, Arts and Entrepreneurship (CBAE).
Aside being trained for free for three months, the graduates were also given free startup tools to start their own businesses and contribute to national development.
Napo started the programme to reduce unemployment in his constituency. Within just six months, about 140 people in Manhyia South Constituency have benefited from it.
Continuing, Napo urged the beneficiaries of the commendable programme to also train other people in the constituency so that they would also become self-reliant.
