Ministry of Fisheries and   Aquaculture Development has indicated that it would investigate shortage of premix fuel in Salaga South as reported by the lawmaker from that constituency, as asked by Zuwera Mohamed Ibrahimah.

According to the sector Minister Hawa Koomson the Ministry has not received reports of any shortage of premix fuel at landing beaches within the Salaga South Constituency.

She further told the House that, reports indicate that, the supply of premix fuel to the five (5) landing beach committees at Salaga South namely ‘Makango Main, Makango Lower, Kejewu Battor, Kafaba and Mataheko have been regular, adequate and without any major challenge so far this year.

The same persists at various landing beaches across the country. Some reforms introduced have denied unauthorized persons from assessing the subsidized product and diverting for other activities.

“We would however, direct the newly Constituted National Premix Fuel Committee to investigate the report”.
