A group calling themselves ‘Concerned Drivers Union’ have bared their teeth at the government for not meeting them halfway in the fight against COVID-19.
Since Ghana began recording cases of COVID-19, many measures were out in place to curb the menace and one of them was for local transport operators to reduce the number of passengers to ensure social distancing in the vehicles – a measure that took a toll on their daily sales.
Despite their plummeting sales, transport operators have been hit with an increase in fuel prices on several occasions.
On Monday, July 6, some drivers increase transport fares by 30 per cent contrary to the Transport Ministry’s orders to revert to the old fare.
Some members of the ‘Concerned Drivers Union’ who spoke to UTV registered their displeasure with the government. With a bottle of Schnapp and eggs in hand, one of the drivers swore to curse any official who interferes with their plans.
