The retired army officer has also accused the DVLA boss of failing to streamline operations.
Brigadier Gen. Joseph Nunoo Mensah, a former National Security Adviser, wants President John Mahama to sack the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) boss, Rudolph Beckley for failing to restructure the Authority to combat corrupt practices there.
The retired army officer has also accused the DVLA boss of failing to streamline operations. According to him, the authority’s restricted services breed corruption as people will resort to dubious means in order to get their cars inspected.
“I went to the DVLA office at Weija and I nearly wept. People were struggling to get their cars inspected and this is where corruption comes in. When you restrict service, people will want to do anything to get what they want. Why can’t we liberalise this whole thing. Drivers have been struggling for nothing. There are so many fuel service station outlets, for Christ sake train and empower them to inspect the cars and give certificates. It is done in Britain”, Nunoo Mensah told Starr FM.
He is of the view that if nothing is done about the rot at DVLA, the repercussions will be unbearable. He has therefore questioned why the DVLA boss has not been sacked.
“In Ghana we like to restrict and see people suffering and that creates corruption. The DVLA boss is still at post. What is wrong with this country? We are committing suicide and dying of frustrations”, the retired army officer indicated.
