Reports yesterday came out that, Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak, notified that, he will be riding a bicycle to Parliament as a way of voicing out the increasing cost of fuel and harsh economy under the NPP gov’t.
This morning, the MP shared a photo which sees him wearing a helmet and a bicycle parked right behind him ready to embark on his journey to the Parliament house.
With the 2019 budget set to be delivered later in November, Mr. Mubarak perhaps hopes it actually delivers on the hope President Nana Akufo-Addo has promised and also offer relief to Ghanaians.
The prices of both petrol and diesel have risen by about 2.76 percent. The price of petrol and diesel is currently pegged at about GH¢5.21 per litre, up from the previous price of GH¢5.07 per litre, despite a reduction in the price of crude oil on the international market.
The Kumbungu MP prides himself on his activism, and has spoken up not only issues of national interest but also expressed a willingness to intercede on behalf of prosecuted minorities in Myanmar, the strife in Palestine and even the recent murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
