Amoako Atta’s directive an empty boast – Alban Bagbin

    Roads and Highways Ministry orders cessation of tolls from Thursday, November 18, 2020.

    Speaker directs minister to reverse the directive

    The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has labelled the Roads and Highways Minister’s directive for the cessation of tolls as an empty boast.

    The Speaker, at a parliamentary sitting on Thursday, November 18, 2021, indicated that for the payment of road tolls to be halted, it must be accompanied by an Act of Parliament since an existing law enforced the payment

    Alban Bagbin thus expressed concern over the minister’s directive to abolish collection of road tolls without recourse to parliamentary approval.

    He said that amounted to disrespect to the legislative arm of government.
