UNIPASS: Govt won’t Impose Any Porous System – Carlos Ahenkorah Assures Freight Forwarders

Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah has said he is not in the right position to dictate to his Minister on what to do as some stakeholders of the newly introduced UNIPASS system have tagged him as not being considerate because he is a freight Forwarder.

“I can’t talk against the Universal Pass (UNIPASS) system when the authorities in charge have accepted it,” he said.

According to him, he was appointed to back the good works of the sector Minister he works under and defend the decisions of the government.

The Tema West Member of Parliment (MP) as a panelist on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ newspaper discussion show urged stakeholders of the UNIPASS system to exercise patience because government will not in any way impose a porous system on them.

“I cannot let out some quotes of sincerity concerning this contract but the best system is which this government has offered Ghanaians. Stakeholders should exercise patience for the best,” he added.

Carlos Ahenkorah assured that the stress that stakeholders of the UNIPASS system are going through now is for a short period as they will be used to the system soon.

He said the government is working hard to sort out demurrage issues with members as promised.
