ALLOW DRIVERS TO TAKE THEIR NORMAL NUMBER OF PASSENGERS OR ADJUST THE FARE BY 30% - DRIVERS TO GOVERNMENT.
The members in King Jesus Transport of Alliance at Kumasi Pampaso in the Ashanti Region are appealing to the government led by Nana Akufo Addo and the roads and highways minister, Hon Akwasi Amoako Atta to allow the commercial drivers to take their normal number of passengers and urged the passengers to adhere the wearing of nose masks and the use of hand sanitizers or they should increase the transport fares by 30%.
According to the drivers, increasing the transport fares by 15% and still refusing the number of passengers they take in order to adherence to social distancing protocols amidst the coronavirus pandemic outbreak in Ghana will not solve their challenges.
Again, the association also added that, the observation of the social distancing protocols in their vehicles is having a huge toll on their earnings.
Speaking with the press, they added that, the price of spare parts, fuel and others keeps still increasing so this 15% increment will not help the commercial drivers to achieve their goals, they will be always be running lost.
They therefore, appeal to the government and the ministry of transport to do something for the transport operators.
