Former Convenor for Alliance For Accountable Governance (AFAG) Dr. Nana Ayew Afriyie has rooted his support for those calling for the suspension of the mandatory towing levy.

According to the NPP MP for Effiduase-Asokore Constituency, inasmuch as the towing levy is a good policy, the economy is not stable enough and so the levy will further impoverish Ghanaians.

“As a member of AFAG, I am also a Ghanaian and I speak my mind and I’m absolutely against it now. It might be a good thing but the timing is wrong; let’s give the good people of Ghana a better form of living and we should ensure that the standard is improving," he stated.

“. . we must make sure we are doing something different from what the NDC did; thus, Ghanaians lives have begun to take good shape before we introduce new levies,” he indicated.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show, Dr. Ayew Afriyie averred that he will not encourage the towing levy for now considering the present economic condition the NPP government inherited from the NDC administration.

“For now, the economy is not stable; that economic situation from the election days is still intact and the new government is now putting measures in place to stabilize the economy. By next year, things will begin to fall into its rightful positions. The heat the nation finds itself is the one we inherited from NDC government and nothing has changed for now, but the foundation is being laid,” he asserted.

He recounted that Akufo-Addo’s government is working assiduously to put indicators right and then translate the indicators into something tangibles for Ghanaians to feel it in their lives.

“It is not in this present condition that I will encourage the towing levy and so the suspension of the mandatory towing levy is a good thing,” he added.

Another MP supporting this sense*less tow levy. In fact, our MPs are the most use*less beings I've ever seen on earth. Such a bad proposal that even primary school pupils can see through, yet our so called lawmakers find nothing wrong with it. The towing levy is NOT a matter of timing. It is simply a BAD BAD BAD suggestion that every sensi*ble person should reject. We already have laws to deal with the problem. What are the authorities doing with the street lighting levy? Road toll levy? etc. Are the road markings all done? NPP will regret if they dare introduce this terrible policy.

NPP AND ESP. NANA ADDO SHOULD OPEN THEIR EYES THIS IS A TRAP NDC HAS SET FOR NPP PARTY. IF THEY DONT LISTERN TO THE CRY OF THE GHANAIANS THEY WILL LOOSE THE 2020 ELECTIONS. THIS IS A VERY COMPLICATING ISSUE THEY SHOULD DEAL WITH IT TACTIFULLY OR LOOSE THE 2020 POOLS TO NDC WHO BROUGHT KALABULE LEVY.
