- outlines efforts to prevent diversion of premix fuel
The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Attah, announced that the first phase of the Anomabo Fisheries College project in the Central Region of Ghana has been completed.
As a result, the enrollment and training of students will commence by the end of this year.
During his presentation of the mid-year budget in Parliament, the minister also outlined the government’s efforts to prevent the diversion and hoarding of premix fuel, which has caused acute shortages at various landing beaches.
To address this issue, 37 out of 50 premix automated vending machines have been installed at landing beaches in Elmina, Chorkor, Nungua, and others.
The remaining 13 vending machines will be installed by the end of the year at other landing beaches across the country.
Additionally, the government has piloted the use of electronic monitoring systems on fishing trawlers to combat illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing practices in its waters.
