GPRTU urges government to import buses for members

trotroMr Robert Sarbah, the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU), on Thursday appealed to the government to import buses and give them on hire purchase to Union members.

He said in 2012 the facility was not made available to them, and combining that with the high cost of vehicles in the country, members found it very difficult to replace the rickety ones on the roads which sometimes led to avoidable accidents resulting in needless deaths.

Mr Sarbah appealed to the government to rehabilitate roads so that drivers would not have to spend huge sums of money to repair their vehicles due to the bad nature of some roads.

Mr Sarbah further appealed to the government to ensure that there was adequate supply of fuel in the country throughout the year and that Union members who used liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) incurred huge looses any time there were shortage.

Mr Sarbah appealed to passengers to see drivers as partners in business and to report any driver who misconducts  himself or charged unapproved fares to the nearest GPRTU office for redress.
