Ghana: Ghana should not ban second-hand cars

The Ghanaian Minister for Environment, Science and Technology, says that legislation will be coming into Ghana to ban the importation of second -hand cars. Bello disagrees:”How are Ghanaians supposed to afford brand new cars? We don't have our own car manufacturing industry to drive costs down.”

    We all r nt the same here, if sum are able to afford new products, lets think about those who find it difficult to feed, or will the govt provid dis product for free. The only avice i can give is that govt shld ensure that dis second hand goods that r been imported into ghana are in good state and will neva course any harm to the general public, the undies shld b a major concern

    Well in my own opinion but is the government ready to provide a better transport for everybody? I think the legislature should look at this. Anyway i dont think that the government can make sure that what we import is good enough. We have to open our eyes, all we do is to bring what the white man has rejected. We are just increasing the garbage levels in country and the sad part the way we manage waste is very bad. The only thing i will say is that ifit has to make some laws then, it has to put measures in place to make sure that everyone is at peace
