Ministry of Transport says it does not intend to disband MTTU

By gna

The Ministry of Transport on Tuesday said the concept of the establishment of a dedicated traffic police would be a collaborative effort between the Ministries of Interior and Transport.

A press release signed by Public Affairs Manager of the Ministry of Transport, Mr Kweku Sersah-Johnson, said it was not the ministry's intention

to disband the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU).

The statement explained that the idea was for the establishment of a dedicated Traffic Police in future as a specialist force to focus solely on

the enforcement of motor traffic rules and regulations and check general indiscipline on Ghana roads.

β€œThe concept has been on the drawing board for about a decade now and

that it would have to go through cabinet and appropriate legislative

approvals before implementation,” it said.
