Mandatory Towing Project not to extort money from public

Accra, Aug 9, GNA – Ruttchen Trucks Ghana
Limited (RTG), a Ghanaian company, which deals in towing and transportation
services, said the impending Mandatory Towing Project is not meant to extort
monies from the public.   

The Company which also deals in the assembling
of mechanical parts, sales and servicing of vehicles claims it is the sole
owner of the Towing Project concept and thus, calling on the public to
disregard information regarding the ownership of the concept by other service

In a statement issued by Mr Jonas Boahen, the
Managing Director of the RTG and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Wednesday,
the company said any information regarding the ownership of the concept other
than the RTG was false.   

It said: “Contrary to claims by some service
providers as owners of the concept, RTG, as documented by the National Road
Safety Commission (NRSC) and Ministry of Transport, conceived, initiated and
presented valid documents in respect to the project pending a Legislative
Instrument for a nation-wide take off in 2007.  

“The RTG thus, has Copy Right on the Towing
Project,” it added and emphasised that the project as originally proposed by
the company, “was not designed to extort money from the public as upwardly
adjusted by same service provider who stole the concept.”  

The company said the project was rather
designed to provide valuable and vital services for road users at large.

The statement said: “The mandatory towing was
proposed by RTG in 2007 and same initiated in 2008.”

It indicated that the facts and “indelible
truth are known and accordingly documented by NRSC, Ministry of Transport, the
current… Deputy Minister of Transport and Parliamentary Select Committee on
Roads and Transport”.

“RTG is grateful to all Ghanaians for the
concerns shown on the wrong implementation of the Mandatory Towing levy,” it
