Former ranking member on Roads and Highways Committee of Parliament, Governs Kwame Agbodza has taken a jab at the Roads and Highways Minister, Francis Asenso- Boakye describing him as not being serious following the Minister’s call for new roads to be tolled.

According to him the current sector Minister was part of cabinet when a decision was taken to stop collection of tolls that brought in the E-Levy policy.

He affirmed that the Speaker and the Minority drew the attention of government it was wrong for them to suspend the collection of road tolls, “they told the Speaker to go to the toll booth and collect the tolls himself if he likes. It is a testament of a government that is wayward, lost touch and do not know what they want. Cabinet took a decision to stop collecting tolls as propaganda to force E-levy down the neck of Ghanaians”, he lamented.

“Again, we are paying E-Levy; today they want to take more money from you. They are coming back to condemn each other, we should condemn the entire government; they cannot choose who is upright in it. We have been consistent saying there was no need to suspend the taking of road tolls; Ghanaians can see which of the political divide can be trusted and consistent with policy in this country and obviously not the NPP.”

He noted that the record of the NPP is nothing good, “we in the NDC have been straight with Ghanaians, the NPP has disrespected Ghanaians all the time. I wish them well in an attempt to show which of them is not serious, the current or past road minister; it’s the whole team that is not serious with government business”, he added
