Political activist kwame Asare Obeing A-Plus has questioned roads ministry on their demand from Ghanaians. The deputy minister of roads Stephen Pambiin has told Ghanaians that they should be ready to pay more tolls if they want better roads but Kwame Asare Obeing A-Plus has stated that: "In the so called elsewhere minimum wage is $14 (86.8 Ghana cedis) This means elsewhere people make $112 (694.2 Ghana cedis) every eight hours, which is $3360 (20.832 Ghana cedis). That's how much the ordinary worker makes elsewhere; twenty thousand, eight hundred and thirty two Ghana cedis".
He questioned the ministry that how much do teachers, lectures, nurses, police officers, doctors, etc, make in this Ghana (Nyame Bɛkyerɛ Republic?)
The deputy roads minister stated that elsewhere people are paying good taxes for better roads but A-Plus opposed his statement and said that: "Elsewhere when toll and taxes are paid it is used to fix the roads and streetlights. The president does not use the money to hire luxurious Jets to bath in the sky".
Ghanaians who reacted to the news stated that their leaders only compare when it favours them and "that's what Dr Bawumia does every time when he mounts the podium but they are are following him".
Some people reacted by saying that when it comes to taxing, Ghanaian leaders talk about elsewhere but when it comes to salaries they are told there is no money meanwhile those up there increase their salaries without same notion of there is no money. "How much do we generate from the tolls alone and what are those money used for? Even the road leading to the tollbooth are as rotten as our governance. Ghanaian leaders hmmm" someone asked.
Some people said that it seems politicians think all Ghanaians who save them are "unintelligent". "Look at the small arithmetical analysis made, even the deputy minister for roads should be ashamed of himself" someone said.
"Minister let your government be ready to pay your workers the right wages. Be ready to sell fuel like those that pay higher toll. Reduce your affluent living and luxurious travels" someone advises the deputy minister.
