Roads and Highways Minister Dzifa Attivor has said that, Drivers who refuse to reduce prices of transport fares as directed by the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) and other unions are likely to be prevented from loading their vehicles at the various bus terminals..                                                          

The GPRTU announced a five per cent reduction in transport fares following a ten percent reduction in the prices of petroleum products by national petroleum authority (NPA).

Even though the new transport fares was meant to be effective last Friday, January 9, 2015, a number of the drivers have refused to comply.

The sector minister Dzifa Attivor said she is in touch with the Secretary of GPRTU Stephen Okudzeto to ensure the necessary monitoring and sanctions are applied.

She said those who failed to comply will be dealt with.

"Some of the sanctions include not loading your vehicles. Can you drive out of the station without loading? What are you going to tell your master? How do you get your daily bread? They will comply," she assured

Her comments comes off after some public  drivers have refused to reduce fares if insurance premiums, engine oil and other related costs in running the transport business are not reduce.
