Please follow me to get access to all my newly published articles.

The recent heartbreaking news concerning the closure of tollbooths across the country by the roads and highways minister which was operated by physically challenged individuals has undoubtedly sparked massive stir, debates and arguments across all social media platforms as the affected individuals recently stormed parliament with a peaceful demonstration.

The introduction of the most anticipated 2022 budget by the finance minister, Ken Ofori Atta in parliament has undoubtedly caused more harm than good considering how most Ghanaians weren’t in support of the budget due to the ‘momo’ E-levy and other related issues aside physically challenged tollbooth operators painfully losing their respective jobs.

After the minority took the privilege to reject the budget, the majority unexpectedly stormed parliament today, November 30, 2021 to convince the acting speaker to approve the most anticipated 2022 bigger which undoubtedly went as planned.

On the other hand, tollbooth operators also took the privilege to get their voices heard following the unexpected closure of all tollbooths across the various regions in the country which served as main source of employment for physically challenged citizens in the country since they couldn’t participate in any active job.

Even though these physically challenged tollbooth operators weren’t allowed to enter parliament with their demonstrations, they took the privilege to laments whilst sending a humble plea to the incumbent President, Nana Akufo Addo and his administration to come to their aid since they were currently jobless.

According to some of the physically challenged tollbooth operators, the incumbent government hadn’t paid their respective salaries for a full year but they had no choice to quit their job since it was there main source of income.

“We haven’t been paid for 1 year but we just need one month salary to survive”, they emphatically lamented.

In addition to this, the tollbooth operators took the privilege to urge the incumbent government to just pay them a one month salary as they wait for their reassignment even though they clearly know that, they won’t be reassigned since the government’s payroll was already full.
