Due to the poor condition of the local roadways, a coalition of commercial transport drivers at Kpone Barrier on Monday withdrew their services.
The Kpone Barrier to Michelle Camp road, Bediako Junction, High Tension, Golf City, and the Yellow Signboard routes are the ones where motorists are clamoring for rapid treatment.
Many commuters who utilize their services to go to and from different locations have been left stranded as a result of the crisis.
Adom News’ Isabella Gidiglo visited the area and saw that a traffic barrier had been set up amid tire fire.
The Chairman of the Kpone Barrier Taxi Drivers Branch, Rexmond Ntiamoah, responded to the development on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem, saying they were not to blame.
He said that because they are aware that a police notice is necessary, the instruction was for members to refrain from working without any demonstration warning.
He charged that dishonest people had also abused their right to strike in order to further their personal agendas.
“We met with Tema, Ashaiman, Kpone drivers, and other stakeholders to issue the directive. So no taxi or trotro driver is working,” he said.
Drivers who disobeyed the order had to get their passengers off the car or risk having their automobiles impounded.
Some commuters had no choice but to walk in the hope of locating a car after numerous unsuccessful efforts to get a vehicle.
Since all attempts to draw the government’s attention have been ineffective, Mr. Ntiamoah said that their action, which is anticipated to continue the entire week, is the first stage of a series of strikes.
Even while it is not intentional to put commuters through hardship, he said they would not give up until their complaints were addressed.
The Police intervened in the meanwhile to remove the barricade and let other drivers who use the road to travel freely.
