Ghanaians Praises Speaker Of Parliament For Keeping Roads Minister On Toes

After speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin directs Roads and Highways Minister, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, to reverse his decision to suspend collection of road tolls, Ghanaians has praised him and stated that he should live long for keeping roads minister on toes.

A lot of people believe that speaker of Parliament has spoken for the masses as they are not expecting such directive from him. Some people stated that the speaker has demonstrated that checks and balances is really working in the august house of parliament.

"Very true. Checks and balances. Presentation of a budget by the executive is subject to approval by the legislature in this case before implementation" someone said and praises Speaker of parliament for his decision taken against roads minister directive to suspend road tolls.

"Long live Mr. Speaker. I was shocked to read that no tolls were collected today. The budget is a 2022 budget why implement it in 2021? The transport minister must be made to pay that amount that could have been raised today" another Ghanaian stated.

"I even asked myself that how can a minister start implementing items in a budget that has not even been approved by parliament? And mind you, this budget is for 2022🤔. Are we in military dictatorship where we rule through orders? Probably, he mistook the finance minister's reading of the budget as a presidential address which normally takes immediate effect 🤣" another Ghanaian stated.

Some people however expressed that roads minister must be surcharged for causing financial loss to the state and he must be made to refund all the toll revenue lost to the state today across the country.

Ghanaians made this reactions known when TV 3 Ghana disclosed the news to them.
