In Accra on Monday, not all commuters experienced an increase in transport fares.  The Ghana Private Road Transport Union GPRTU says it has not increased its fares and is therefore advising its members to maintain the old fares until a final determination from the union.

The General Secretary of the Union Mr. Godfred Abulbire Adogmawas was reacting to a statement issued by some concerned transport unions of a 20 percent increase in the current fares.

Commercial Road and Transport Operators on Sunday May 16 2021 issued  a statement of an increase in transport fares by 20%, effective from May 17, 2021. According to the statement this has become necessary in view of the number of taxes on fuel announced by the government .However the GPRTU says it is not party to the agreement.

The General Secretary Mr. Godfred Abulbire Adogma has therefore called on the public to disregard the statement until the union comes out with a position on the issue.
