Commercial drivers earlier today embarked on a nationwide strike to express their displeasure on government’s failure to scrap taxes on fuel.

The industrial action left thousands of commuters stranded.

Most lorry stations were empty, with some frustrated passengers engaging the services of commercial motorbike (Okada) riders, ride-hailing services while others walked.

At some stations, passengers formed long queues in anticipation of getting a vehicle to market centres and their places of work.

But drivers say they have had enough of the lip service paid to their plight by government.

Due to the recent happenings, Joy News’ Evans Mensah tonight hosted the spokesperson of Coalition of Commercial Transport Owners, Abbass Imoro, Communications Manager of NPA, Mohammed Abdul-Kudus, Chairman of Transport Committee of Parliament, Kennedy Osei Nyarko and Energy Analyst, Kojo Poku to discuss how commuters’ pain can be averted.
