Tow Levy: NPP MP’s were bribed – Abronye DC

The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe has alleged that Npp MP’s on the Road and Transport Committee in parliament took monies as bribe from the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) to implement the controversial mandatory towing levy.

“I have my evidence and I can tell you that NPP MPs who are on the committee recieved bribes from the Road Safety Commission to implement this bad law”.

“I repeat the MPs were bribed to implement this law. And I am ready to give evidence to the privileges committee if they wish and invited me for contempt”, he claims.

“I am not afraid to defend myself, should they invite me to the Privileges Committee. I know and I will standby by the allegations anywhere, every place” he boasted.

His allegation comes after the country’s lawmakers were accussed of taking Ghc 150.000 to approve National Lotteries (NLA) Authority bill which confirmed by former chairman of Parliament’s Finance Chairman, Hon. James Klustse Avedzi.

The chairman confessed and justified the lawmakers received the money from NLA as their sitting allowance/per diem despite earlier denial.

But Abronye DC as he is popularly known, has threatened to quit the party if President Akufo-Addo appended his signature on the fraudulent document and accused the Road and Transport Committee of thievery.

“The MP’s together with the Road Safety people are all thieves that is why they have agreed to introduce this bad law to steal our monies”, the outspoken organizer alleged on Kumasi-based Otec FM’s afternoon political talk show “Dwabrem” hosted by Agya Wusu Ansah.

Meanwhile, vice president IMANI Ghana, a policy think tank, Mr. Kofi Bentil has questioned the powers behind the implementation of the levy.

“There are some powerful persons behind it”, he said on an Accra based radio station.
