Members of a group, identified as Online Drivers Union of Ghana, narrating the struggles in their line of duty, have revealed how long hours of driving are affecting their sex drive.
According to the drivers, the ride-hailing app operators have forced them into “modern-day slavery” which is gradually causing their health.
“They expect us to be online for 15 hours a day though the fares are low and if you don’t fall sick, you will have a low sex drive. Drivers are forced to now rely on a drug called dragon to enhance their sex drive,” a driver lamented.
Expressing their frustration on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem’s Y’asem Nie segment, Promise Torgbo Wise, Public Relations Officer of the Association, urged the government to intervene.

“The fares are low compared to that of taxi drivers and we buy spare parts from this same money. We are suffering under the unfavourable working conditions,” he said.
According to Mr Wise, some of the drivers now keep their clothes and other personal belongings in the booth of their cars to enable them work long hours due to the demands of their operators.
The group, whose members work with companies such as Uber, Bolt, Yango and Taxify, in September 2019 hit the streets to protest against unfavourable conditions being meted on them by their operators.
