A last-minute meeting on Sunday led to the drivers pulling out of their strike after government agreed for a taskforce to be set up to review the proposed fare tariff.

According to an agreement document, a taskforce will review the proposed fare tariff with a view to introducing a “much fairer commuter fare system that will serve the interest of both commuters and drivers in the Gambia for implementation by October 2021”.

The agreement was signed by interior minister Yankuba Sonko and drivers’ chief Omar Ceesay.
