Last Friday, GPRTU communicated to the general public that effective Monday 19th December 2022 transport fares should be reduced by 15.3%.
The reduction in transport fares comes at the back of the reduction in the price of gasoline.
Though Ghanaians happily welcomed the development, some commercial bus drivers and their conductors have refused to pay heed to GPRTU’s directive.
A new video that has surfaced on the internet captures a passenger physically assaulting a trotro mate in a moving vehicle.
Commentary surrounding the video alleges that fight broke out between the mate and the passenger after the bus conductor charged the man the old fare price instead of the new one.
The angry passenger resorted to physical abuse in order to get his money back.
