Communications Director of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the leadership of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) of sabotaging government.

According to him, the union decision to reduce transport fares just five percent in spite of the 10% decrease in petroleum product is to make the Mahama-led administration unpopular.

Speaking at a function in the Western region, Solomon Nkansah alleged that the leadership of GPRTU are bed fellows of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP). He indicated that the leadership has allowed their affiliation to the NPP to clout their judgement as public servants.

To corroborate his claim, the NDC Communications Director said the Greater Accra regional chairman of the GPRTU is a leading member of the NPP. “This man is a serial loser of the NPP parliamentary primaries at Ablekuma constituency” he stated.

He recalled that in the first year of former President Kufuor’s regime, “the NPP first increased fuel by 64% and GPRTU was made to increase fares by 15%. The following period, they increased fuel by 94% and GPRTU was made to increase fares by 20% so what has changed?”

 Solomon Nkansah urged Ghanaians to boycott the GPRTU to demonstration their displeasure about their conduct. “Ghanaians should boycott the GPRTU; if possible walk to work to ensure they reduce transpoert fares” he stressed.
