News reaching Ghpage.com has it that users who wish to take pictures on the iconic Adomi Bridge would have to pay between GhC2 and GHC 4 first to be able to pictures including the selfies.

One of the longest bridge on the Volta Lake in Ghana built some decades ago was recently renovated to avert any possible danger to the lives of motorists.

The government instituted the levy as a measure to rake in some revenue to sustain its numerous projects hence a levy on the bridge.

Tourists have taken to social media to cry over the levies expressing disappointment at the move by the government.

Johannes Nartey, Mr. Guru who is a Ghanaian comedian took to Facebook to lament after being asked to pay GH¢4.00.

He shared a picture of his receipt and posted:

“Your excellency Mr President, this is the receipt given to me today 19th April 2019 at Adomi bridge as fee for pictures I want to take as a Ghanaian on the bridge Kwame Nkrumah built and which Mahama renovated. The people in charge told me that the order is from the President, that even if you want to take selfie it’s 2gh per person. Your Excellency if indeed you authorized this God forsaken tax then am disappointed in you. How much do Ghanaians pay when they travel to Dubai, China, American, etc yet those countries are 100× developed. Even China’s world’s longest 30 miles sea bridge to Hong Kong is free, what is happening? What a shame!!!!”
