 We ought to do matters right

Authorities undertake social intervention programs as one of the manners to cushion the hundreds in opposition to hard monetary situations. Because of the impact of world fees of crude oil and other petroleum merchandise on the cost of transportation in the united states of America, governments, past and present, have continually endeavored to introduce interventions by using offering public buses to assist humans to commute from one area to another at a decrease price, in comparison with what they might have paid beneath ordinary market conditions.

We've visible the Omnibus Services Authority (OSA), the town Express, and the Metro Mass Transit, all of which have been meant to ease the load of fee of transportation, disintegrate. The latest introduction, the high-quality Bus gadget (QBS), popularly known as Aayalolo, is gradually moving in the direction of that fate. Lately, there was a halt in the operations of Aayalolo as a result of what officers described as technical hitches.

The operator of the buses, the Accra Passenger transport executive (GAPTE), sent text and Whatsapp messages to its customers around three.50 p.M. On Thursday, October 25, 2018, announcing that its offerings could no longer be to be had inside the night from Tudu in Accra to diverse locations within the city following the technical hitches.

It promised to inform passengers approximately the resumption of the provider when the anomaly was resolved by its technicians. But over every week after that, the bus offerings are but to resume, leaving passengers pissed off. For lots of buyers and employees dwelling at Amasaman and its environs who depend upon the Accra-Nsawam train to go back and forth to and from the significant business District earlier than it became shut down, Aayalolo became a dependable alternative, and with the buses grounded temporarily, their journey has become greater difficult.

The surprising turn of occasions concerning the operations of the QBS is unfortunate due to the effect it has on folks that depended on it. It has turned out to be obvious, from the daily graphic’s statement, that a maximum of these interventions are not nicely deliberate before they may be achieved. It appears there was no right due diligence finished in terms of getting a reliable source of investment to subsidize the operations of the company for the going for walks of the buses before they had been procured.

Someplace else across the world, those offerings are furnished with the properly-budgeted budget from the taxpayer and they run without any halt in provider.

Apart from the buses, the kingdom has also spent a variety of cash to create dedicated lanes for the buses however the lanes are utilized by unauthorized motors, thereby obstructing the loose flow of service via the operators of the buses. In locations consisting of Ikeja in Lagos, Nigeria, devoted bus lanes have been furnished and these are policed constantly the usage of CCTV cameras or patrol groups which constantly flow around to arrest recalcitrant drivers who use the bus lanes.

In Ghana, the situation is distinctive. The government who should recognize higher are the ones who flout the rules and, in the end, others be part of it, making vain the essence of making devoted lanes to ensure the fast motion of the buses. The everyday graphic finds it unfortunate that when spending hundreds of thousands of Ghana cedis to collect these buses, they have been left at the mercy of the climate, while many commuters war day and night time to locate industrial cars to get home.

It is our wish that the authorities will rethink the model once more and make sure that the service is restored within the satisfactory interest of the public. We can not allow the funding made to move waste.  We need to no longer permit the various women and men who won employment from the carrier to take a seat at domestic without jobs. As soon as it works in some other place, it may be paintings in Ghana, but it handiest if everybody turns out to be responsible and make certain that we do what is proper.
