The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey has questioned the rationale behind lawmaker for Adaklu, Kwame Agbodza’s decision to challenge the ban on aboboyaa.
The ban which was introduced by the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating council following consultations with various stakeholders, forms part of the minister’s “Let’s Make Accra Work Agenda.”
But according to Mr Agbodza who is the member of parliament for Adaklu Constituency, there is no law in the country that gives the Regional Minister to determine which vehicles can be driven on Ghana’s roads.
Responding to the minister in an interview on Asempa FM, Henry Quartey questioned the wisdom of the MP with respect to the subject matter.
I am surprised that my colleague, Honourable Agbodza is speaking like this. You see he chooses to do politics with everything and I am sad, I am surprised and I am disappointed in him. I didn’t expect this to come from Honourable Agbodza.”
“I am a member of the Transport Committee and is he trying to say that he is more sensible than the 20 NDC MPs who were with us, is that what he is saying? Because this decision came about with the inclusiveness of 20 MPs of the NDC led by their Chairman, Nii Lante Vanderpuye,” he stated.
