A former Minister of Roads and Highway and Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini has commended government for withdrawing the implementation of the compulsory tow levy that has generated public concerns.

According to him, the decision by government was in the right direction since it was in response to public outcry.

“I think that the government has responded rightly; it is a step in the right direction. When a policy is introduced or initiated and there is a general outcry, the government has to suspend its implementation and reconsider it and review it to ensure that it meets the legitimate expectations of the people.

So I commend government for withdrawing the towing levy.” He said on an Accra based radio, Class fm.
Transport Minister Kwaku Ofori Asiamah in a press release on Sunday announced the cancellation of the levy following strong opposition by most Ghanaians against the implementation of the policy which seeks to impose a mandatory fee on all vehicle owners in the country.
