‘We are buying fuel at exorbitant price so why can’t we increase fares?’ – GPRTU to Ghanaians

Derided for being insensitive in raising transport charges, the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has fired back.

Due to the high cost of gasoline in the nation, members of the Concerned Driver Union and the GPRTU are already demanding a 20% surcharge.

The public has recently opposed the Saturday rise, with many thinking it is unlawful.

Ghana Private Road Transport Union Director of Industrial Relations Abass Imoro said 3FM the increase is fair and reasonable.

“After all, a 20% rise in fares is quite religious,” he remarked.

“Which legislation says we can’t raise rates if we acquire gasoline at outrageous prices?” asks Abass Imoro.

The Ghana Road Transit Coordinating Council (GRTCC) has urged drivers not to continue charging the new transport tariffs.

The Council said it will meet with the Minister of Transport and GPRTU leadership on Wednesday to discuss new tariffs.
