Gyampo slams ‘point-scoring’ gov’t over road tolls U-turn
Professor of Political Science at the University of Ghana Ransford Yaw Gyampo has chided government for the knee-jerk action of canceling the collection of road tolls and reintroducing same.
Responding to the plan to reintroduce road tolls, Prof Gyampo condemned government for the “intransigence” exhibited when there were calls on the government to rethink its decision to abolish the tolls that generated some resources for the nation, particularly in the wake of the nation’s economic misery.
He said: “Now we want to reintroduce the road tolls? Good idea. But what went into the decision to cancel it? Governance is too serious a business to be left in the hands of mere political point scorers. The ideals of the Philosopher King are to guide those ruling!”
He called on government to be responsive and listen to voices of dissent.
