They also said prices of petroleum and spare parts keep increasing day in and day out, coupled with other nuisance taxes.
“We wish to announce to the general public that there will be an increment in transport in the coming week.”

“We are also cautioning the government not to start the tollbooth operations again as has been hinted by our inside source.” We will resist any attempt by the government to initiate the tollbooth operation.
