Several passengers stranded as commercial drivers embark on indefinite strike

Several passengers are stranded, with most of them taking the only available option of walking to their respective destinations as a result of the ongoing strike action by the Coalition of Commercial Transport Owners.

This comes after the Coalition earlier threatened to embark on indefinite strike action until government scraps off taxes like the Price Stabilisation and Recovery Levy, Special Petroleum Tax, the Energy Recovery Debt Levy and the Sanitation levy.

Drivers who have defied the directive from the coalition were forced to alight their passengers.

Meanwhile, the strike has taken a different twist in Ashaiman and Kasoa as the drivers have been playing football at the station since morning while their stranded passengers look on.

Ghana Private Road and Transport Union (GPRTU), Association of Tipper Truck Drivers, Harbor Transport Owners, Ghana National Cargo Transport Association, Ghana Committed Drivers Association, Concerned Drivers Association, Digital Drivers, Commercial motorbike riders, the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers and several others are part of the Coalition of Commercial Transport Owners.
