We the Concerned Drivers Association are calling on the government to increase transport fares by 30% following the recent increase in fuel prices.
The latest hike in fuel prices is having a toll on our income hence the need for government to increase transport fares by 30% with immediate effect.
We are being cheated, every time the prices of fuel go up but transport fares remain the same. How is the government expecting us to get our money to take care of our families? We want the GPRTU and the government to increase the fares to about 30 percent because currently we the drivers are at a lost.
Prices of petroleum products have gone high after the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) directed the Oil Marketing Companies to start applying the revised Energy Sector Levies, we can’t afford to work in vain.
We the Concerned Drivers Association members can no longer bear the rising cost of fuel and its impact on the transport business hence the decision to pass it on to passengers.
