Transport operators to strike from Monday

Road transport operators are threatening to embark on a nationwide strike on Monday in protest against a 400 per cent increase in motor insurance premiums.

The Chairman of the Ghana Committed Drivers’ Association, Charles Danso, said at a press conference on Tuesday that the association wanted insurance premiums rates reduced within two days.

Mr Danso said: ‘We are by this press conference, giving G.I.A., N.I.C. and the Ministry of Transport, two days within which to reduce the motor insurance premium rate to the agreed percentage of between 240%-260%.

‘Failure to do this will result in the call to all members of GPRTU, GCTDA, and GRTCC nationwide to position themselves for a total strike action on Monday, February 8, 2016, to register our anger at what we consider a needless act of bad faith by the GIA, and an act of insensitivity by the NIC and Ministry of Transport.’
