Roads and Highways Minister Kwasi Amoako-Atta has told road contractors in the country their outstanding debts will be paid in full if the controversial e-levy is passed.
“When the E-levy is implemented, the road sector will get its fair share. All contractors owed by the government will be paid. A number of deplorable roads will be fixed when the E-Levy is introduced because all contractors we owe will be paid.
“You are going to benefit directly from its implementation. No serious government will joke with its contractors,” the Minister said.
The Minister further disclosed that toll booths used for the collection of tolls would be transformed into public urinals.
“We even want to refurbish all those toll booth structures to provide proper and decent washrooms for use by motorists to avoid situations where motorists stop to ease themselves indiscriminately.”
