Alhaji Alhassan, Industrial Relations Officer of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) in Eastern Region, has advised drivers to exercise restraints over the recent increase in fuel prices. He was optimistic that the government would accept their plea, citing the difficult economic conditions, including the government’s marginal reduction in fuel price.
He added that the Union had been advised to wait for further engagement and negotiations before any possible transport fare adjustment. He said the Union was yet to finalise negotiations with the government and other stakeholders.
The fuel price increase has resulted in some public concerns over the rising cost of living.
