Ghana Road Transport agrees freeze on transport fares

Accra, May 31, GNA - The Ghana Transport Co-ordinating Council (GRTCC) on Thursday said transport fares would not go up because the National Petroleum Authority would not increase petroleum prices by more than six per cent.

A statement signed by Mr. Kojo Adom Moses, Chairman of the Council, said they decided unanimously to maintain current transport fares should price increases of petroleum products stay under six per cent. "It is now certain that the National Petroleum Authority will keep its word," the Council said, adding that all members of the Council should not increase fares.
