TRANSPORT OPERATORS WILL SOON BE COMPELLED TO REDUCE FARES – Gov’t

Minister of Transportation, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah government will soon order transport providers in the nation to lower prices of transport fares.

This comes in response to worries expressed by Majority Chief Whip Frank Annoh-Dompreh on the transportation unions’ failure to lower pricing despite the ongoing decline in gasoline prices.

The Nsawam-Adoagyiri MP urged the minister to act at the approval of the budget estimate for the ministry.

“We’ve often lamented about the skyrocketing prices of petrol, diesel in this country. And Speaker I must commend the government that recent times we read and receive consistent reduction in the ex-pump prices of these products and it’s gratifying that the dollar is also struggling to contain the strength of the cedi.

“These are all good times. However, I am not too happy when the ex-pump prices of these products are going back and yet transport operators don’t pay heed to this consistent reduction in the price of these products.

“I think going forward we must have an arrangement to deal with this concern. Ghanaian people are speaking to this and I think it’s a big concern for all of us.
