“We all know how the state in which the Tema motorway is. We have to fix it. Because every time they take tolls from us. The ordinary man knows that they make a lot of money from the tolls but where does the money go?” That is the question on Ghanaian dancehall artiste Stonebwoy’s mind as he calls on the government to take immediate steps to fix the potholes on the Tema Motorway.
The “Mightylele” hitmaker, who is currently on a campaign against motor accidents, said the government must begin to show more concern for citizens in this regard. In an interview on Citi TV’s ‘Hall of Fame’ show, the artiste said Ghana has already lost many good people to road accidents and that must stop.
“You know everything becomes politicized when it comes to people like myself but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t voice out to push the people in power to actually address these issues because I can take it all the way to Terry Boncha, Suzzie Williams and all,” he said.
Stonebwoy believes the monies drivers pay as tolls should be more than enough to fix the deplorable roads in the country.
