The Chamber of Cement Manufacturers Association of Ghana has described the laying of the Legislative Instrument (LI) on cement price regulation as unconstitutional.

This comes after the LI was laid in Parliament on Tuesday, July 9, by the Minister of Trade and Industry, K.T. Hammond.

In an interview with the media after a stakeholder consultative forum, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Association, Dr. George Dawson-Ahmoah, argued that there is a disconnect regarding the premise of the LI to regulate cement pricing, thus doubting its constitutionality.

“This stakeholder meeting could have been done about three or four months ago. If we had done it, we wouldn’t be where we are now. Around the table, discussions have really gone into this LI, which has been laid in Parliament, and we are counting days.”

“One very significant point comes out, that day in and day out, you actually learn to see the consequences of it, but it’s unconstitutional, which of course, is mind-boggling.”
