Premix committees at the landing beaches have been cautioned against refusal to sell the product to Ghanaian fishermen who have migrated to other areas on fishing expedition. Mr Kwaku Nicol, National Chairman of the Premix Distribution Committee, gave the caution, when he inaugurated the Gomoa Dago landing beach committee at Dago in the Gomoa West District of the Central Region.He said it had come to his notice that some committee members were denying migrant fishermen of the product and pointed out that the fuel had been subsidized by the government with the tax payer's contributions, therefore no Ghanaian, who is a legitimate fisherman, must be denied the fuel. Premix is not for the committee members or the landing beaches alone but for all Ghanaian fishermen, Mr Nicol stressed. He, however, cautioned against indiscriminate selling of the product.Mr Nicol warned against selling of the fuel to people in drums, which are conveyed in trucks. He assured fishermen of the regular supply of the fuel and advised them to deist from panic buying, saying, it is an offence to hoard the fuel. Mr Nicol said only the landing beach committees were mandated to sell the fuel and urged them to report any problem with regard to the sales to their respective district chief executives. He advised the committees to open accounts with the banks and save the profit that accrue from their daily sales, adding that, they can then consult with the chiefs and the general public on how to utilise the money.Mr Theophilus Adioo-Mensah, District Chief Executive asked the committees to work diligently to help the fishermen and to promote their business. Similar committees have been inaugurated at Apam, Mumford, Fetteh Nyanyano and Dampase near Kokrobite.
