Bus and taxi fares in Ghana up by 15%


Bus and taxi fares in Ghana have gone up by 15% today, sparking criticism of the government of President Nana Akufo-Addo.

He came to power last year promising to transform Ghana’s struggling economy and improve living conditions.

But the government has agreed to the fares increase, to compensate operators for higher fuel prices and the rising cost of spare parts and maintenance.

Many Ghanaians say the rise will add to the cost of living at a time when they are struggling to survive.
