People selling hand sanitizers at high prices are murderers – Sam George

1 Mins read

Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, has described producers and importers of hand sanitizers who have tripled the prices in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak in Ghana, as “murderers”.

Mr George said the high prices will make it impossible for a lot of Ghanaians who do not have the wherewithal, to have access to the product for protection.

He said this last Friday when he donated health items worth GHS57,000 to the Prampram Polyclinic as part of his contribution to fighting Coronavirus in his Constituency.

He presented hand sanitizers, nose mask, gloves, Veronica Buckets and bowls.

The lawmaker told Accra 100.5FM’s parliamentary correspondent, Richard Appiah Sarpong after the donation that: “It took me four days to get the items and the prices are too exorbitant. The prices have been tripled as a result of the artificial shortage in the system. We could have provided twice the number if others have been honest with the prices they are selling the items.

“If you are a producer or importer of the products do not hike the prices. If you hike the prices at this time you are being unpatriotic, you are being un-Ghanaian.

“In fact, you are a murderer because when you hike the prices, we cannot buy equipment for health workers and these health workers can get infected. You will kill a health worker simply because of your greed?

“So, hiking the prices now is tantamount to murder.”
