The members of the National Concern Drivers Association have threatened the government to increase transport fares if the government do not decrease fuel prices.
The body said that they have shown nothing but respect to the authorities in concern with reducing the number of passengers in buses and taxis in order to ensure social-distancing.
According to the drivers, they were expecting that fuel prices goes down due to the fall in crude oil in the international market as a result of coronavirus.
“We have noticed that the government does not have drivers at heart and is unconcerned when it comes to matters of improving the lives of drivers.
We’re therefore giving government up the end of this week, thus from now to 27th of April to reduce fuel prices or we will increase our fares,” the angry drivers said in a statement.
The Association has also contacted the Ghana Private Road and Transport Union (GPRTU), to discuss with car owners to reduce daily sales to make it easy for them to reduce the number of passengers
