Transport associations have served notice that the main thing that would stop the expected 15% addition in transport tolls is assuming the decrease of fuel costs is to the degree that a liter of fuel is sold for GH¢8.80.
The associations say anything over GH¢8.80 would mean an addition in transport admissions in the country.
Fuel costs are supposed to be decreased hardly compelling Friday, April 1, 2022.
Addressing 3FM’s Sunrise in front of the expected decrease, the Industrial Relations Officer of the Ghana Private Road Transport Unions (GPRTU), Ibrahim Abass Imoro, said “we had needed to do that [Thurs]day”.
“We had coordinated a question and answer session to report the toll increases however we heard there would have been a decrease of fuel costs today so we begged them [members] to delay the declaration until the decrease of fuel costs today.”
Alhaji Moro added that “we have consented to increment by 15% yet assuming they can decrease fuel costs to under GH¢8.80… we won’t increment transport tolls yet anything short of GH¢8.80, we will think of new charges”.
“We are hanging tight for the decrease, assuming it is under GH¢8.80, we have no reason to increment admissions except for in the event that it isn’t so much that that, we are prepared to sort out and think of new tolls today.”
The GPRTU man told Sunrise host Alfred Ocansey that “we are in a monetary period so it’s not our shortcoming”.
