Good news: worried drivers have stopped a plan to raise transportation costs by 30%.

The Concerned Drivers Association has put off its plan to raise transit fees by 30% on September 21, 2022. 

Last week, it was said that the Association and the True Drivers Union would make transportation costs 30% more expensive. 

They said that the planned increase was due to higher costs for gasoline and replacement parts, as well as bad economic management by the government. 

Prices for electricity, water, spare parts, food, and pure water have all gone up, so we have no choice but to raise our prices as well," the two organizations said. 

"We can't make enough money to feed our families and pay off our debts," the unions said. 

But Paa Willie, who is in charge of Concerned Drivers, told Nyankonton Mu Nsem that the proposed increase has been put on hold.

Today, Sunday, September 18, 2022, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi Asante Kotoko will host RC Kadiogo in the second leg of their CAF Champions League preliminary round match against RC Kadiogo: 

The first leg was played at the General Kerekou Stadium in Cotonou. Isaac Oppong, who was just a teenager at the time, scored the only goal as the Ghana Premier League champions won by a single goal. 

Kotoko wants to get back to the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2006. 

Even though the team won the first leg, head coach Seydou Zerbo and the team's new captain, Richard Boadu, spoke to the press on Friday in Kumasi and said that the second leg would be tough. 

"I know Kadiogo very well. Their style of play is always to attack, but we need to keep our minds on the game for the whole 90 minutes," said coach Zerbo. 

"The game on Sunday is very important to us all, and we know it won't be easy, but we're ready. 

"We've all read about history, but now it's our turn to make it, and as players, our main goal right now is to get to the group stage." At the press conference, Captain Richmond Boadu said, "The coach has been great, and he gets along well with us." 

Franck Etuoga Mbella, a striker for Asante Kotoko, did not play in the first leg and will not play in the second leg either. 

The game is set to start at the Kumasi Baba Yara Sports Stadium at 3 p.m. 

In the next round of the competition, the winner of the two-legged tie will play the winner of the game between Gaborone United Sporting Club and AS Vita Club of DR Congo. 

The last time Kotoko won the CAF Champions League was in 1983, when they beat Al Ahly of Egypt.
