Traders Appeal To Government To Reconsider It Decision

The finance minister said that the government is looking to introduce innovative ways of raising revenue after it scrapped the payment of tolls on tolled roads.


Ken Ofori-Atta noted that the government is proposing a 1.7% phone transactions levy payable by mobile money users per transaction above ¢100.

He said this will help the government to shore up revenue inflows to fund road projects in the country.

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, who announced this before Parliament during his 2022 Budget presentation on Wednesday, said it should be a relief for road vehicle users given the heavy vehicular traffic it engenders.


He said it will shorten travel time and ineffective revenue collection at tolling points on public roads.

Meanwhile, traders at Kumasi- offinso tollbooth said the government must rescind its decision once it going to affect them.
