Go to Court - Johnny Hughes responds Alhaji Suhuyini

The elimination of the road toll levy and replacement with the E-Levy has been one of the most contentious aspects of the 2022 budget. Various points of view have been stated in an attempt to stop the'momo levy' from being implemented, as well as the call to reinstate the road toll levy, claiming that it is unconstitutional to adopt a policy in an unapproved budget.

On the New Day morning show on TV3, Alfred Thompson, the NPP's Central regional chairman candidate, and Alhaji Alhassan Suhuyini, the member of parliament for Tamale North, took turns expressing their opinions on taxation concerns.

However, Alhaji Suhuyini's comments, asking that the minister of roads and highways be surcharged, drew attention during the conversation. "We earn roughly GH210,000 everyday from road toll levy across the country," Suhuyini said, "and by the minister's rash choice, the state is going to lose previously pledged revenues of close to GH10 million, which is why I believe the minister should be surcharged for such recklessness." However, in reaction to this remark, Johnny Hughes advised him to appear in court. Johnny Hughes responded to Suhuyini, "Go to court, go to court."
