A group of drivers known as the Concerned Drivers Association has shown that it will expand transport tolls by 40%, successful Monday, May 10, 2021.
As indicated by them, their purpose to expand the admissions holds, regardless of the public authority’s declaration of a decrease in the cost of fuel by eight pesewas for every liter.
The National Petroleum Authority (NPA), after a gathering with partners on Tuesday discounted the 17-pesewa edge on the costs of oil based goods to nine pesewas.
Yet, the Spokesperson for the Concerned Drivers Association, David Agboado, says tolls will in any case go up.
“The OMCs have their own margin that they will bring out later because we know that the world market will be shooting up from today to the 15th. The first window will come out and when it does, it will be more than that 27 cedis so based on that, we’ll stick with the 40% we want to take. It will take effect on Monday,” he said.
He showed that they thought about different variables, remembering the expectation of an overall increment for the expense of fuel in the coming a long time on the world market.
Then, the administration of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) says it will take an official conclusion on the rate increment for transport admissions after a gathering with the area service. The General Secretary of GPRTU, Godfred Abulbira Adogma, had prior disclosed to the media that the charge addition will be somewhere in the range of 15% and 20%.
He demonstrated that the Union had effectively wanted to build its admissions following the endorsement of the 2021 financial plan yet needed to hang on because of the coming into power of new fuel value levies on May 1, 2021 to empower them to calculate it their new vehicle passages.
