Tollbooths Were Not Constructed To Serve As Market Center-Osei-Kyei Mensah To Hawkers

Majority Leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah has sent a message to hawkers who hawk around tollbooths calling on government not to abolish toll collection in the country because it is affecting their business.

According to Osei-Kyei Mensah there is no sense in what the hawkers are saying that government’s abolishment of toll collection has rendered them jobless.

He noted that the toll centers were not constructed to serve as a market center and also not the only place they can sell.

”I wouldn’t say what they are doing is not good because I agree that times are difficult in the country so if someone is doing something to put body and soul together that’s fine but tollbooths are not the only place they can sell. The tollbooths were not purpose for market centers”.

Speaking on Accra-based Okay FM he said; ”apart from maintenance, we contract people to clean the place and these people clean it two to three times daily. If you don’t do that visitors will see Ghana as a dirty country. What the traders are saying that the government has rendered them jobless, the truth is that tollbooths are not constructed to serve as market centers. So if they say the tollbooths are not there anymore so it has rendered them jobless it doesn’t make sense”.
