Omar Touray, President of the Gambia Transport, Agriculture, Food and Industrial Workers Union (GTAFIWU) has said that the recent increment of fuel pump price will affect all sectors in the country.

He said everybody needs transport to go to their work place, so whenever the price of the fuel goes up, all sectors will be affected in one way or the other.

On the coming of the new buses, Touray welcomed the idea and said this was a good move because they are helping the sector and therefore called on all unions to work as one body so that at the end of the day, they can achieve the same objective.

He said a look at the country’s transport sector reveals everyone is affected, and in order to solve the problem, all unions should come together and speak with one voice.
