The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) has issued a caution about a potential fuel crisis in the event that the grievances of the striking members of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union are not addressed promptly.

COPEC argues that the authorities’ neglect in addressing the drivers’ issues could lead to severe repercussions.

The Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union has commenced an indefinite strike as of Tuesday, May 21, in pursuit of better working conditions.

Duncan Amoah, the Executive Secretary of COPEC, has expressed concern that a prolonged strike exceeding 72 hours could compel consumers to experience long lines at gas stations.

“The oil marketing companies cannot get you the products without those tanker drivers and what that adds to the woes of the Ghanaian is that if that strike is not called off within the next 48 to 72 hours, we may soon have to queue to get fuel because the supply at the various fuel stations is likely to run out.”
