Tanker drivers to meet after NPA boss ‘promise’


Members of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (GNPTDU) are meeting Tuesday to determine whether to adhere to the promise by the Chief Executive Officer of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), Alhassan Tampuli, to rescind their strike. The members said this is not the first time such promises have been given by the NPA boss, hence the decision to meet and deliberate on the latest one. The drivers embarked on a nationwide sit-down strike in demand for better conditions of services. On Monday, September 24, they escalated their action by withdrawing their services, claiming the NPA failed to address their concerns. The drivers, numbering over 4,000, parked their tankers until the NPA addressed them on Monday. The Chairman of the Tanker Drivers Union, George Nyauno, told Onua FM’s Yen Sempa on Tuesday that “the promise was just a verbal one. There was no evidence or document to back the promise”. He explained that “if they do not bring the paper, we shall not work” but they will meet all the drivers to deliberate on the issue and come out with a decision.
