February 10, 2022

The Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta has clarified a comment he was purported to have made indicating that government is in preparation to turn all road tollbooths into washrooms.
He said, he was taken out of context and that was not exactly the fact of the matter. He said the media only took a small part of the whole interview he granted and plays games with it.

Mr. Amoako-Atta gave this clarifications when the member of Parliament for Adaklu, Kwame Agbodza Governs raised the issue on the floor of Parliament, asking the minister for roads and highways, why he is going to turn tollbooths in the country into washrooms meanwhile, the minister is looking for money to reconstruct new tollbooths.

He further told the House that it is important to stop the indiscriminate ways that passengers urinate on the highway by providing appropriate washrooms along the highways and not necessary the tollbooths indicating that most of the existing tollbooths already have washrooms in them.
