A Professor of Political Science at the nation’s premier University, the University of Ghana has chided the government for the knee-jerk action of cancelling the collection of road tolls and reintroducing the same.
Responding to the plan to reintroduce road tolls, Prof Ransford Gyampo condemned the government for the intransigence exhibited when there were calls on the government to rethink its decision to abolish tolls on the road that generated some resources for the nation, particularly in the wake of the national’s economic misery.
He said “Now we want to reintroduce the road tolls? Good idea. But what went into the decision to cancel it? Governance is too serious a business to be left in the hands of mere political point scorers. The ideals of the Philosopher King are to guide those ruling!”
He called on the government to be responsive and listen to voices of dissent as he who is cutting a path would never know if his back is crooked.
