A former National Chairman of the Peoples National Convention (PNC) Bernard Mornah has said the Minister of Roads and Highways Kwasi Amoako-Atta should be made to pay for the losses following the closure of the toll booths.
Mr Mornah said the minister is a lawmaker therefore, he should have known that until Parliament approved the budget, the policy proposals could not take effect.
Speaking on the New Day show on TV3 Friday November 10, Mr Mornah told Berla Mundi that “You can’t do that, we are a country of laws and you are a Member of Parliament , you make the laws.
“You do know that once the toll Act has been in place it is only parliament that has the capacity to say don’t collect tolls. For me, the Minister for Roads should be made to pay for the number of days until the budget is approved, how much on the average.
“Of course we know how much is collected per year so you can average it how much is collected per day and let him pay. next time he wont do that.”
