The Executive Secretary of the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers, Duncan Amoah, has applauded the ruling government on its decision to suspend the proposed mandatory towing fees.
Speaking with Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive Tuesday, Duncan Amoah, mentioned that it was obvious that the whole of Ghana was not happy with the government’s initial decision.
According to him, the initial idea to make the collection of these towing fees compulsory was a non-starter and not done anywhere.
He pleaded with the ministry to investigate and consult the necessary authorities to suit Ghanaians adding that failure to do so, the chamber of Petroleum Consumers will equally resist any other tax system.
However, executives of the Ghana Road Transport Cordinating Council (GRTCC) who were in favour of the compulsory towing fees say they are disappointed in the government’s decision to suspend the fees.
The General Secretary for GRTCC, Angel Kwasi Kwakye, told Ekourba Gyasi that that this compulsory towing fee has been in the pipeline for long, adding that the move will help reduce accidents.
