Ghanaians react to trotros, taxis operating at full capacity coupled with increased fares

Following President Akufo-Addo’s announcement that commercial vehicles can now operate at full capacity, some Ghanaians have began questioning why government increased transport fares.

It will be recalled that following several calls by the various drivers union for an increase in transport fares, government announced a 15% increment earlier this month.
