Support E-levy For Us To Pay Monies Owed You - Amoako-Attah To Road Contractors
The Minister for Roads And Highways is courting the support of the road contractors for the government’s controversial 1.75% E-Levy. According to the Minister, their support for the levy will also help in raising more revenue, part of which will also be used to pay the road contractors owed by the government. Speaking at a
meeting with the leadership of the Road Contactors Association, the Minister, Kwasi Amoako-Attah also mentioned that a number of deplorable roads will be fixed when the E-Levy is implemented. When the E-levy is implemented, the road sector will get its fair share. All contractors owed by the government will also be
paid. A number of deplorable roads will be fixed when the E-Levy is introduced because all contractors we owe will be paid. You are going to benefit directly from its implementation. No serious government will joke with its contractors. Mr. Amoako-Attah also noted that there are proposals for the various toll booths dotted across the country to be transformed into decent washrooms.
We even want to refurbish all those toll booth structures to provide proper and decent washrooms for use by the motorists to avoid situations where motorists stop to ease themselves indiscriminately. His comments come on the back of the National Road Safety Authority’s call on the sector Ministry to remove the booths to prevent accidents from occurring since they’re also no longer serving their purpose.
