The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) says it cannot force other transport operators to charge the 15% increment in transport fares.
Deputy General Secretary, Richard Yaw Amankwah says the various driver unions that increased their fares by 30% breached the consensus reached by the GPRTU.
He said as the majority shareholders in the transport industry, they engaged the government demanding a 30% increment in transport fares.
However, the government asked them to increase fares by 15% considering the challenges and economic situations of Ghanaians.
He said Ghanaians must choose between the transport operators charging 30% and those charging 15%.
He noted that although they felt disappointed in the unions that chose to charge the 30%, there was nothing they could do about it.
However, when passengers board vehicles that operate with the GPRTU, and they charged more than 15%, then they have a cause to complain.
Speaking on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he said members who associate with the GPRTU are mandated to charge a 15% increment in transport fares.
