Ghanaweb in a report states that some traders lamented that consumers are refusing to accept the new price. One seller said, “with the previous prices I make a profit of only GHc3 which is very bad and so the new prices increase my profit to some extent”.

“The only problem is that when we mention the new prices to them, they don’t agree. I did not decide to increase the prices by myself. It was announced, so I’m pleading with everyone to accept the prices”.
The hawkers have however pleaded with consumers to accept the new prices and purchase more like they used to.
