Transport operators strike today

Published

on

The Coalition of Commercial Transport Operators are expected to begin a sit down strike on Monday 6th December 2021 across the country.

The Coalition in a statement has directed the leadership of all its affiliates to close their stations and advise all drivers and car owners to fully comply with the directive.

They also cautioned all members that there will be severe administrative consequences for any member who is found to be in breach of this announcement.

According to the Coalition, their action is borne out of a number of demands they are expecting the government to offer them in the 2022 Budget.

“That we are calling on government to, as a matter of national emergency, to totally scrap the Price Stabilization and Recovery Levy, the Special Petroleum Tax, Energy Sector Levy, Energy Debt Recovery Levy and the Sanitation and Pollution Levy from the pump price of petroleum products before the midnight of Sunday the 5th December, 2021.

“That in the unfortunate failure of the government to fulfill the demands of the Coalition, as stated in paragraph 3, above, the Coalition will have no other option but to commence our sit-down strike action across the country effective Monday the 6th December, 2021,” the Coalition statement.

The Coalition is a body representing commercial passenger and cargo transporters as well as online taxi service operators and commercial motor cycle operators popularly referred to as “Okada”.

According to the Coalition, the decision to embark on the strike was arrived at during a meeting of the Coalition, held in the Ghana Trades Union Congress Building in Accra, on Monday the 22nd November, 2021.

“That in protest against the deafening silence of the government in the 2022 budget statement on the removal of the five (5) specific nuisance levies and taxes that we listed in our press conference on the 9th November, 2021 at the Neoplan Station in Accra. We have resolved to take actions that will protect our livelihoods and also alleviate the suffering of the travelling masses.

“That all commercial passenger and cargo vehicles shall display red bands on their vehicles with effect from tomorrow Tuesday 23rd November, 2021 as a signal to the government regarding our impending sit-down strike action,” they added.

on

A 19-year-old former student of the Three Town Senior High School, Gilbert Akakpo, has been sentenced to four years imprisonment with hard labour by the Aflao Circuit Court for causing harm to an ICT tutor of the same school, John Kwashie Akey.

On Wednesday, August 11, 2021, the convict, Gilbert Akakpo, who was then a final-year Visual Arts student of the school, reportedly stabbed the teacher, John Kwashie Akey, with a cutter when the teacher attempted to prevent him [Gilbert Akakpo] from bullying some first-year students of the school.

The convict fled the school following the attack but was later handed over to the police by his parents on Thursday, August 12, 2021.

Gilbert, was, however, granted bail by the court when he first appeared in August and was allowed to sit for the rest of his final examinations.

Appearing in court on Tuesday, 30th November 2021 the prosecution told the court that, the victim, John Kwashie Akey, sustained deep cut wounds on the upper part of his left arm as a result of the attack and has had to be sent to the Ketu South Municipal hospital where he was treated and discharged.

In his ruling, the presiding judge, His Honour Joseph Ofosu stated that the court was lenient on the convict as a first-time offender.

He, however, stated that the punishment was necessary to serve as a deterrent to other students who have no respect for authorities in schools.

The convict is currently awaiting a COVID-19 test result before he is conveyed to the Ho Central Prison to begin his prison term.
