Tollbooth workers who used to operate the now redundant tollbooths have shared stories of their suffering after the government declared that it would discontinue road tolls in the country.
Joy prime has done a documentary it is set to release regarding the plight of the workers. In a snippet of the documentary shared on Facebook, the former workers complained bitterly about how the loss of their lively hood has greatly affected them.
Some of the people who are disabled lamented that they have nothing else to do and that the compensation promised to them by government is yet to be fulfilled.
In November 2021 during the presentation of the 2022 budget statement and Economic policy, the Minister of Finance Ken Ofori-Atta announced that government needed more funds to fix roads in the country and hence were going to discontinue tollbooths and replace them with a better alternative, which brought the introduction of E-Levy.
