One of the biggest controversies surrounding the 2022 budget has been the abolishing of the road toll levy and replacing it with the E-Levy. Various views have been expressed in a bid to kick against the introduction of the 'momo levy', and the call to reinstate the reverse the immediate abolishing of the road toll levy, describing it as unconstitutional to implement a policy in an unapproved budget.
Discussing some of the issues on New Day morning show on TV3, Alfred Thompson who is the Central regional chairman hopeful for the NPP, and Alhaji Alhassan Suhuyini, the member of parliament for Tamale North, took turns to express their views on the taxation issues. But one thing that caught attention from the discussion was Alhaji Suhuyini's comments made suggesting that the minister roads and highways should be surcharged. "We get about gh¢210,000 daily from road toll levy across the country, and by the reckless decision of the minister the state is going to loose already committed funds of close to gh¢10 million and that is why I think that the minister must be surcharged for such recklessness", Suhuyini retorted. But in response to this comment, Johnny Hughes said to him to go to court. "Go to court, go to court", Johnny Hughes responded Suhuyini.
