The Ghana Road Transport Operators have warned of yet another increment of transport fares effective Monday 21st March, 2022, if fuel prices are not reduced.

It can be recalled that barely 3 weeks ago the transport fares were increased by 15% effective 26th February, 2022 due to high escalating of fuel prices in the country.

The Industrial Relations Officer of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), Abbas Ibrahim Moro, who gave the warning, explained that “by Monday if fuel prices are not reduced, within the week, we shall come out with new transport fares”.

In an interview with 3FM on Sunrise morning show hosted by Mr.Alfred Ocansey, monitored by Honestynewsgh, Mr. Moro said “We are in commercial business…nobody buys something for GH¢3 and sells it at GH¢2, which is why people travel to China to make business. We have given ourselves this week and you [Ghanaians] will definitely hear from us next .

“It comes with the other components. We have to sit and look at other components before coming out with the fares.”

“Previously, we were not going by the 25 percent threshold of fuel price increment but now we have stopped that. We are going by a 10 percent threshold of fuel price increment”.

“We are giving ourselves a week to see if the government will listen to us, else we have to come up with an upward adjustment”, he revealed.
