The Finance Minister also revealed that government will toll all new roads constructed under concession agreements between the Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund (GIIF) and the Roads and Highways Ministry.

The general public has been reacting to the news. Here are some reactions:

Tollbooth collection is back, doesn’t it mean that the E -Levy will be scrapped ?🥺

That all new roads being constructed will be tolled is a great idea. May I add that it should be e-tolls please. No able man should sit in the box and say he/she is a ticket officer. #MidYearBudgetReview

🤣😂🤣 if they use one wheelbarrow of stones they will tag it as a new road so you will pay a toll.

Soon you can pay to drive out of your own house in Ghana.

Road tolls collection structure has not been the best.

It’s not mutually exhaustive since some road users will not contribute directly to the fund.

If i drive between Kasoa overhead to Ofaakor, Kasoa to Winneba Junction, etc. I will not be affected. #MidYearBudgetReview

Government to resume toll collection on new roads under GIIF-led PPP concession agreement. 😬

After hearing the finance minister speak,its obvious to me that IMF is being brought in to enforce revenue mobilization since the minority won’t allow it #MidYearBudgetReview pic.twitter.com/aAHGxf3h2E

Your Finance minister says, IMF came into the country for their own observation. They didn’t invite them.

Can you believe this, 6 yes on and we still blame the previous government. #MidYearBudgetReview
