Drivers with the ride-hailing company, Bolt in the Koforidua Municipality of the Eastern Region, have declared a two-day strike.


The strike begins today, Sunday, March 6, 2022, to Monday, March 7, 2022.


The drivers say recent increases in fuel prices and the failure by the service operator to increase their base fares have necessitated the action.

“We, the Bolt Drivers in Koforidua have decided to embark on strike on 6th and 7th March 2022. This has become necessary due to bad pricing in times of high fuel prices and management’s refusal to listen to the plight of drivers”, the aggrieved members said in a statement.

They also cite what they term “unexplained irregular activities on the Bolt App” that lead to losses and high commissions that reduce the earnings of drivers.

According to the drivers, the strike is apt because they want their demands to be met.


“We apologize to our customers who will be affected by this action, as we hope this action will cause management to listen to us so that we can serve you better”, the statement concluded.

Bolt expanded its operations by announcing its services in Koforidua in September 2021.

The expansion was part of Bolt Ghana’s long-term plans to provide safe, affordable, and efficient transportation to Ghanaians across the country.

Other drivers in parts of the country, like Accra and Kumasi, have also embarked on a similar strike in protest of what they call poor conditions of service.

The drivers who primarily use ride-hailing apps lament, the recent increment in fuel prices has worsened their plight.
