According to economic experts, there will be an increment in commodity prices to 8.5%. This is because of the increment in fuel prices. As we all know, when fuel prices go up and subsequently affects transport fares, commodity prices also increase.
As it stands now, there have been series of fuel increment and transport fares have stayed constant for some time. This time around, Ghanaians are not going to enjoy that again.
According to David, spokesperson of the Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana, they will increase transport fares by 40% if the government doesn’t meet them to settle on matters of appropriate increment.
They have suffered enough -he adds.
However, Ghanaians have taken to Twitter to share their sentiments and register their displeasure through the #FixTheCountry campaign.
Ghanaians are trying to overcome the challenges from Covid-19 and if the government doesn’t meet the citizens halfway, there will be dire consequences.
Transport price increment affects everything in Ghana, even pure water. It will make life quite challenging and add more pain to injury.
