The Director of Industrial Relations of the GPRTU, Alhaji Abass Imoro, who revealed this argued that transport operators did not increase fares immediately the prices of fuel were increased until a time the increment of fuel became significant.

He further explained that from January to November 2022 alone, fuel prices have gone up by two hundred and forty three percent (243%) hence it is not true that transport operators increase fares anytime there is an increase in fuel prices.

Imoro said it was rather unfortunate they can’t reduce transport fares though fuel prices have gone down a little, stressing that the margin is very minimal coupled with high cost of vehicle spare parts.
