Deputy National Chairman of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), Mr. Robert Sarbah, has denied popular reports that the union has implemented a 15 percent price hike as of today.
Addressing the issue, Mr. Robert Sarbah pointed out that although the increments were long overdue, all the proper procedures had not been taken care of in order for the union to implement the increments.
According to Mr. Sarbah, the union was still busy engaging stakeholders, and that the outcome of these engagements would be made public soon.

“We are yearning for an increment but it will be done correctly. The processes have never been completed and so for now there are no increments,” he said.
Speaking to Class FM's Moro Awudu, host of the Executive Breakfast Show on Friday, March 10th, Mr. Sarbah expressed any price hike effected by local drivers would be “unjustified and wrong” until talks with stakeholders were concluded.
Following the fuel price increase over the weekend due to the Ghana Cedis free call and global oil price adjustments, a litre of petrol is now selling between GHS4.25 and GHS4.39 while a litre of diesel is selling between GHS4.13 and GHS4.25.
