Ghanaian television broadcaster with Metro TV, Bridget Otoo has taken to Facebook to complain about the excruciating hardship in the country.
Writing on the ongoing debate on the fuel price hikes, the no-nonsense journalist said she spends between 600 to 800 Ghana cedis weekly on fuel on her car.
She described this as crazy, indicating that this shouldn’t happen in a country where oil is produced and exported.
“I spend about 600-800 cedis on fuel a week. Wow! It’s just crazy. I cannot even begin to imagine what others are going through”, she wrote.
“If you own a car how much do you also spend? If you do not own a car and you use public transport, how much do you spend a week on trotro, bolt or Uber? Are you living or you are surviving?”, the journalist asked.
On Monday December 6, the Coalition of Commercial Transport Owners withdrew its services saying until government scraps some taxes on fuel to reduce the price of fuel at the pumps.
This had left many commuters who use their services to and from their various destinations stranded at different lorry stations in the capital, Accra.
The Private Transport Operators who last month threatened to embark on a strike action if government faild to reduce taxes on fuel, were urged to suspend their action.
