Drivers to strike over transport fares


The leadership of the Concerned Drivers Union, has asked its members to increase transport fares by 30 percent from today Monday July 6.

This follows the increases in fuel prices, according to the leadership.

The Vice-chairman of the group, David Agboado, said any resistance from the authority against the move to increase the fares will result in a strike.

“We are telling our passengers that from [today] on, when you go out, calculate 30 percent extra of what you used to pay,” Mr. Agboado noted.

He further said he did not expect the police to interfere with their decision to increase fares, adding that the union has been sensitising commuters on the expected increase.

“If the police do that, on Tuesday, no vehicle, absolutely no vehicle will move within the 16 regions,” he told Citi news.
