Fuel Tanker Drivers Declare Indefinite Strike Over Poor Roads

Fuel tanker drivers have begun an indefinite strike to protest over a bad road network affecting their operations in the country.

The National Vice Chairman of the National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union(NPTDU) Sunday Alabi in an interview said the failure of the government to fix the bad roads will loom a shortage of Liquefied Petroleum Gas(LPG) at fuel stations by Wednesday, June 28, 2023.

“The issue is our roads, all junctions leading to our depots from Tema, Takoradi, Buipe, and Kumasi are all bad”

“In 2017 back then we visited the President at the Flagstaff house and informed him about the issue of the bad roads affecting our businesses and he asked the Road Minister to fix the roads for us but till now nothing has been done.”

“As tanker drivers, the bad roads burst our tyres, the bad roads break our springs, and that keeps occurring on a daily basis as it affects our smooth operations as well”.

“If nothing is done concerning the bad roads by Wednesday there will be a shortage of LPG at most fuel stations in the country” he noted.

Drivers currently at Tema, Takoradi, Buipe, and Kumasi have parked their tankers due to the directive from management to halt operation till the government fixes the bad roads to facilitate their work.
