UK-based Ghanaian disc jockey Paa Kwesi Kwarteng Darko, also known as DJ Paak, has asked Ghanaians to be content with the recent fuel price hikes in the country.
According to him, Ghanaians need to count themselves lucky for buying fuel at GH¢8 while it is much pricier in different parts of the world.
In a Twitter post, Dj Paak who was reacting to Ghanaians’ concerns about recent fuel price hikes said the situation has been dire in the UK where they buy fuel for close to GH¢14…thus Ghanaians need to be content with their situation.
In a nutshell, DH Paak was telling Ghanaians to stop complaining since the fuel price hikes have become a global situation due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine amongst other issues.
Many Ghanaians did not take kindly to his assertion as they bash him for making what they describe as reckless commentary.
For many, the standard of living in the UK cannot be compared to Ghana thus it was erroneous for DJ Paak to suggest that Ghanaians were lucky for buying fuel below GH¢14.
