The Liquefied Petroleum Gas(LPG) Marketing Association is poised to resist the implementation of the cylinder circulation module which gives oil company Puma the right to distribute gas to residence for domestic use.
The module would also prevent the situation where consumers would have to queue for long hours to fill their gas cylinders.
But speaking to Citi News, the Public Relations Officer(PRO) of the LPG Marketing Association, Bernard Owuradu said the development would destroy their businesses.
He said, they made it clear to the previous administration that, the program would not help their businesses and surprised the new administration has decided to implement the module.
“Just as we told the previous administration,that if indeed what it seek to achieve is to expand the coverage of LPG users, it must be done through us because we have been serving Ghanaians all these years. So they cannot have a new policy would would take us out of business because they want to increase accessibility,”he stated.
He said what the new policy would do is that a huge boiling plant would be set up and cylinders would be filled at that plant, and distributed to people in their homes.
This he said would amount to creating a new business and destroying existing ones. He said most of them have gone for loans to expand businesses because they also wish to increase accessibility.
He added that, per the policy objective, they are the best people to implement the policy and not Puma.
