 Ada West District Chief Executive,  Mr. Adzoteye Lawer Akrofi has said  anyone found smuggling premix fuel will be prosecuted.

Speaking at  the public engagement on the district’s budget preparation for the year 2020 at Sege, the DCE revealed that  investigation into premix smuggling is ongoing to get the culprits and wipe out criminal activity undermining national development.

After briefing technocrats of the coastal areas on what the District Assembly intended to do in the communities and how incomes will be generated, the chairman for the Dangme East Zone 4 chief fishermen association, Nene Raymond Lomo Abayateye,  also appealed for enough premix fuel at an affordable price for their fishing expeditions.

The DCE told them that “the District Assembly is almost done with investigations over alleged smuggling activities in some communities along the coast. We will start sending those selfish people to court for prosecution then everybody will realize that the assembly is keeping records of everything that goes on in the District.”

It will be recalled that allegations of smuggling of premix fuel went viral last year about some communities around the coast of the Ada West District.

It was alleged that fisher-folks bought the smuggled fuel at an exorbitant black market price that made it virtually impossible for them to break even.
