DVLA apologises over mandatory GHC108 first aid kit

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has apologised to Ghanaians for introducing the controversial mandatory first aid kit.

Many Ghanaians have kicked against the new policy, saying the GHC108 price tag is a rip-off.

Deputy Minister of Transport, Titus Glover condemned the DVLA for unilaterally initiating the process without consulting relevant stakeholders.

However, in a statement, the Governing Board of the DVLA conceded that “there has not been the necessary public education, discussion and sensitization with relevant stakeholders.

“The Board therefore would want to advise our patronizing clients/customers that the introduction of the “First Aid Kit” has been suspended and put on definite hold.

"We unreservedly apologize to the general public for any inconvenience occasioned,” the statement added.
