The Ghana private road transport union (GPRTU) is hinting of the increase in transport fares very soon.
The hint follows the hike in petrol and diesel prices between 8 and 11 percent in the first week of January.
The National Chairman of GPRTU, Mr. Kwame Kumah speaking with Kasapa Fm’s Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman said the transport operators are waiting for the appointment of a new Transport Minister for negotiation.
“The transport operators cannot take any decision without consulting the Ministry of Transport and the transition of the new government must settle for negotiation to be concluded” he said.
The increase in transport fares is most likely going to shore up prices of goods and services in Ghana - a development which will see inflation rates for the month of January soar.
