LPG operators call off strike

ban

The  LPG Marketing Companies Association of Ghana has ended its four-day strike following  government’s intervention.

The association directed its members to embark on a nationwide sit-down strike on Monday to compel government to lift the ban on the construction of new LPG stations across the country.

The LPG operators claimed that the ban had cost its members 10 million dollars.

The ban was imposed following a gas explosion that occurred on October 7, 2017, around Atomic Junction in Madina.  7 deaths were recorded in the disaster while  132 people were injured.

However ,  Cabinet lifted the ban yesterday, prompting the LPG gas operators to end their strike.

“We, the LGP Marketing Companies Association of Ghana, welcome the government’s decision to lift the ban on the construction of LPG retail outlets across the country. We are by this statement calling off the industrial action commenced on Monday, August 1, 2022, with immediate effect”, the association said in a statement.
