U/W: GPRTU responds to Passengers in Upper West

The Upper West Regional Branch of the Ghana Private Roads and Transport Union (GPRTU) says it has implemented strict COVID-19 safety protocols across all branches in the region.

According to the Industrial Relations Officer of the Union, Alhaji Nuhu Mahama, in an early interview in Wa, the union is committed to the safety of drivers and passengers thereby enforcing the wearing of face mask and washing of hands at GPRTU stations before boarding. Alhaji Mahama noted that, this is in-line with the president’s directives to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

The general secretary also noted that, the GPRTU has not increased its transport fares despite the sudden increase in fuel prices in the second week of January this year. Mr. Mahama however urge the general public to take COVID safety precautions serious.

Meanwhile, passengers of the Wa-Tamale Station have called for authorities to intervene as they are being extorted in the name of covid-19.

The passengers admitted fares were increased from Ghc35 to Ghc40 at the Tamale Station yet the protocol wasn't observed.

Fares at the Wa-Kumasi station have also been increased from Ghc50 to Ghc60 with same number of passengers.
