The True Drivers Union has disclosed that although fuel prices have been reduced, they have no intentions to reduce transport fares.
The True Drivers Union’s Public Relations Officer, Yaw Barimah, emphasized that the drivers have no reason to reduce the prices of transport fares.
The PR Officer, Yaw Barimah in an interview on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm disclosed that they are aware of the reduction in fuel prices but have no intentions of reducing fares.
“We are aware that the cost of fuel has decreased. We would desire to reduce transportation fares, but we are not prepared to do so. We will not even lower fares by one pesewa. There has been no change. As a result, we are unwilling to lower transportation fares.”
“If a thief steals from you and you chase him down and he gives you back some of what he stole from you, do you celebrate and clap for him?” he asked.
He claimed that the cost of fuel had risen above normal levels in the past, as had the cost of spare parts, so why should we reduce transportation fares?
