Transportation Fare Increment False – Alliance Of Drivers Ghana
Alliance of Drivers Ghana (ADG) has said that transportation fares has not been increased.
The media space has over the few weeks seen many false news circulating that indicates the government has increased transportation fares by 10 percent.
A group supposing to be false pretenders, National Concerned Drivers Association (NCDA), made the publication. The NCDA, had earlier published a release of false statement about a change in transportation fares.
Meanwhile, some Ghanaians have believed the government had indeed increased transportation fares. Some drivers and conductors in Accra had since last week increased their transportation fares because of this.
The chairman of the NCDA, Chairman William Osei, signed and issued a press release on the false statement in the early hours of Monday, February 15, 2021.
The release categorically stated that, passengers will pay 10 percent increment of transportation fares come Monday, 22nd February, 2021 while DVLA serviced charge has been increased to 15percent.
Tariffs on spare parts increased to 40 percent while tariffs on lubricants increased to 25 percent. Alliance has therefore informed Ghanaians that the above mentioned information is false and not true.
Ghanaians should therefore pay deaf ears to the false information with the greatest disobedience it deserves, they added.
It is to be noted that the government of Ghana since June 2020 increased transport fares by 15 percent and no increment has been effected afterwards.
