Consumers of Petroleum Products must brace themselves for a possible fuel shortage as tanker drivers threatened to strike over disagreements with the National Petroleum Authority.

The tanker drivers are protesting a directive by the NPA for the fixing of a tracking device on their trucks.

Per the directive, tanker drivers who do not install the device will not be allowed to transport petroleum products from the Tema Oil Refinery.

Secretary to the Tanker Drivers Union, William Adarkwah in an interview with Starr News said the tanker drivers are agitated over the matter.

According to Adarkwah, the NPA brought only 1,000 tracking devices, which are not enough for the over 5,000 tankers.

“We have more than 5,000 tankers across the nation, and they [NPA] brought only 1,000 devices and after fixing the 1,000 they said if you don’t have the device you cannot work…but the device is not available”.

Adarkwah added: “We told them that if nothing is done on it then Monday we would sit and won’t work”.
