Commercial drivers suspend planned fare hike in Cross River


Calabar’s proposed fee rise has been postponed by the Unified Commercial Drivers Association (UCDA) in Cross River.

This is according to a statement released during a stakeholders’ meeting in Calabar on Monday night.

Mr. Uqua Edet, the state’s Commissioner for Transportation and Marine Services, and Mr. Thomas Okon, the UCDA’s Chairman, signed the statement.


Following a stakeholders meeting in Calabar, Mr Gabriel Ada, Chairman Commercial Transport Regulatory Agency (CTRA), and Mr Ephraim Ekporoko, Chairman Mini Bus Association, signed the communiqué.

Commercial drivers in the state had, in a statement, said that from Monday, Nov. 22, they would increase the cost of a drop in Calabar from N50 to N100.

This, they claimed was due to the increase in costs of maintaining their vehicles.

However, the resolution to shelve the planned fare increase was taken in the best interest of the people of Cross River, all the transport operators and commuters in the state.

“Consequently, all drivers and other stakeholders should return to status-quo immediately,” the communique read.

Some of the residents of Calabar who spoke commended the associations.

The residents urged spare parts dealers to reduce their prices.
