Transport operators have announced a 10 per cent reduction in transport fares across the board effective Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by Mr Godfred Abulbire, General Secretary of Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), and Mr Emmanuel Ohene Yeboah, General Secretary of Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC).
The two leaders explained that the reduction is to accommodate for the reductions in petroleum products observed over the period.
In November last year, fuel prices went up astronomically, with diesel selling at more than Gh¢23 per litre while petrol sold at almost Gh¢18 per litre.
However, fuel prices have dropped significantly, with both diesel and petrol selling at Gh¢12.64 per litre at most pumps.
