Road Accident

“Use your brains and stop seeing procurement as the solution” – Manasseh Azure Awuni attacks NRSC.

The rampant reportage of road accidents in Ghana has been a great concern to citizens. The cause of this chronic disaster has been attributed to several factors. 

According to National Road Safety Commission (NRSC), mandatory tow levy will be re-introduced as a form of measure to improve our roads and reduce road accidents. 

However, the outspoken Ghanaian investigative journalist and freelance reporter, Manasseh Azure Awuni, has reacted to NRSC policy on his Facebook page. 

He asserted that NRSC should embark on prudent measures to mitigate road accident than planning to re-introduce a mandatory tow levy which was scrapped by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s administration. 

He further stated that levying of taxes is not the only solution to countless challenges drivers, passengers and pedestrians face on our roads. 

“Asking every vehicle owner, including motorbikes, to pay mandatory towing levies every year to Jospong won't solve the problem. 

Use your brains and stop seeing procurement as the solution to all of Ghana's problems”, he said. 

Moreover, Manasseh Azure Awuni urged NRSC to step up their duties by enforcing rules and regulations that govern our roads. 

“Begin to impose hefty fines prosecute those who leave their broken down vehicles on our roads, and the problem will go away”, he said. 

He wrote this today on Facebook.
