The National Concern Drivers Association of Ghana has given government a one week ultimatum to reduce taxes on fuel “or dance to the tune we will play”.

The group said “we have noticed keenly that, all effort for the government to reduce fuel prices and taxes are unheeded”.

“If Ghanaians will recall, we protested against the high prices of fuel and scraping off some petroleum taxes, but the government have turned a deaf ear to all our plea and grievances”.

The National Concern Drivers Association of Ghana in a media release copied to announced that “as an Association, we are by this press promising the government that, the next line of action by us won’t be favorable at all”.

The driver union indicated that, the Price Stabilization, Recovery Levy, Energy Debt Recovery Levy, Fuel Marking Margin, and Special Petroleum Tax are the sole cause of the price build ups and urged government to scrap them to enable fuel prices come down.

They expressed disappointment at government’s refusal to meet their demands when it had the opportunity to do so in the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy and warned that government will “face our wrath” should it fails to comply within a week.

The statement concluded that “our members are dying some are also running away from their bankers and debtors” and “we ask all our customers and stakeholders to bear with us when the time is due”.
