[Photos]: How Accra commuters walked their destinations over transport operators’ strike

Commuters in Greater Accra Region Monday, December 6, trekked by foot to their various destinations following the strike by the transport operators association.  

The strike, in protest of hikes in fuel prices, saw commercial drivers abandoning their vehicles to loiter about. At the Ashaiman Lorry Station, drivers were seen playing football at the lorry station while commuters stood in queues.

At Awoshie Abranteɛ, the situation was not different. Commuters there waited in vain for buses to take them to their respective destinations while some risked sitting in the buckets of KIA trucks.

Meanwhile, a statement by the Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) as signed by General Secretary Godfred Abulbire said the strike has been suspended.

“The leadership of the Union had been invited to the Presidency during the course of the day,” the statement said.
