The Ghana Private Road and Transport Union (GPRTU) has directed its members to suspend the ongoing strike action and resume operations.
The directive comes after the leadership of the union was invited to a meeting with the President at the Jubilee House, Monday morning.
A statement by the union stated that “the Leadership of the Union has been invited to the Presidency during the course of the Day. Developments will be communicated to members.
We, therefore, entreat our cherished members to go back to their normal duties.”
A sit-down strike by commercial drivers across the country has left thousands of Ghanaians stranded at various bus terminals.
The nationwide strike is to protest the high cost of fuel prices in the country. Prices of fuel in the country have increased significantly over the past six months, with many complaining about the situation.
Currently, most oil marketing companies in Ghana sell fuel between GH¢6.60 per litre and GH¢6.90 per litre. There are seven taxes on fuel which amount to GH¢1.9 on each litre of fuel purchased.
