The National Drivers Association of Ghana says it will increase transport fares by 10% on February 22.
The drivers say this has become necessary as a result of
the increment of some taxes at the DVLA and the ports.
In a statement released by the drivers on Monday, February 15 and sighted by this website, the drivers said “As we speak, the service charge at DVLA has been increased to 15%, tariffs on spare parts increased to 40%, tariff on Lubricants increased by 25%.
“Due to the rapid increase of these services, we are calling on all Ghanaians to comply with the introduction of the new fare coming Monday.
“We ask all drivers to ensure passengers put on nose mask before they enter in their vehicles, together we can conquer COVID-19.”
