The Ghana Oil Company (GOIL) has reduced fuel by 15 pesewas after a directive from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
It comes after Monday’s meeting between the government and transport operators at the Presidency over their sit- down strike.
Checks by asaaseradio.com show that the reduction took effect Tuesday morning with a litre of fuel at GOIL now selling at GHC6.70 pesewas.
