Kwahu Easter Gridlocks: Atibie-Nkawkaw Taxi Drivers Increase Fares

Advertisement

The Kwahu Easter festivities have caused a surge in demand for transportation services, leading taxi drivers at the Atibie-Nkawkaw rank in the Kwahu South Municipality to increase fares. Passengers travelling from Nkawkaw to Atibie were charged GH¢10 before the Easter celebration, but the fare has now risen to GH¢15 due to heavy traffic and gridlocks in the Kwahu area.

Drivers have had to navigate through traffic for hours, unable to move at their usual speed and making their business unprofitable. The increased fare is necessary to cater to the extra fuel cost incurred during the occasion.

Some passengers have expressed dissatisfaction with the fare hike, stating that there has been no increase in fuel cost. A reveller, Akosua Korang, who lives in Accra but is a native of Atibie, criticized the taxi drivers for taking advantage of the Easter celebrations and making it difficult for people to move freely and enjoy the festivities.

However, some drivers have assured passengers that they will revert to the old fares right after the Easter celebrations. They maintain that the fare hike is reasonable due to the Easter occasion and the heavy traffic build-up, which restricts their ability to move freely like they used to do during normal days.
