Concerned Drivers Threaten To Block Roads And Demonstrate Naked Over Fuel Prices

The Concerned Drivers Association says its members will mount road blocks and demonstrate naked if government does not take measures to reduce fuel prices.

According to association, their recent 20% increase in transport fares is diminished by the latest surge in fuel prices.

“Not long ago Driver Unions agreed on an increment of lorry fares which was due to the increment of fuel prices at the time.

“After a week of fare increment, prices of fuel have shot up again which directly affecting the increment of fares bring us back to zero profit.

“We asking the government and the economic management team to deal with the rampant increment of fuel prices immediately or we will advise ourselves,” a statement by association said.

It added: “The 20 %increment of fares at week was not even enough to compliment our sales and maintenance of our vehicles, but we managed considering our customers and knowing we’ll that salaries have not been increased.

“We promising the government, if we don’t see a positive change in hike of fuel prices, then we will demonstrate, block major highways in the capital and go naked for them to feel our wrath.

“We believe the ordinary Ghanaian must suffer for the mismanagement and incompetence of the government”.

Prices of fuel which has become topical in recent times went up again on Tuesday with petrol now selling close to GHC10 a litre.
