The commercial drivers union of Ghana have called off their strike which they embarked on today morning which left many commuters confused and stranded on our roads. We have been informed reason for the strike call off is to enable them go into further engagements with Government where they can put forth their concerns concerning the incessant increasing fuel prices.
