Drivers Are Complaining That The High Fuel Prices Is Collapsing Their Job- MP For Bongo Reveals

According to Edward Bawa, a member of parliament for Bongo, Ghana's high fuel prices are ruining the transportation industry. On Saturday, June 25, he said that truckers are lamenting the effects of high fuel prices on their businesses on Key Points on TV3.

Any taxi driver you speak to will tell you that business is declining. According to the member of the Parliament's Mines and Energy Committee, a drop in gasoline costs directly affects inflation.

The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has stated that they are considering raising transportation costs by 15%. Alhaji Abass Imoro, the GPRTU's public relations officer, also stated on the Key Points that they are waiting to announce the raise until they have reached a deal with the Ministry of Transportation.

We are considering raising the transportation costs by 15%, he stated. We are waiting on the transport ministry to come to a decision, he continued. Transport companies have been grumbling about the nation's growing fuel prices.

The GPRTU claimed that because high fuel prices are having an adverse effect on their enterprises, it was decided to increase transportation costs.
