E-Levy not panacea to Ghana’s problem- Concerned Citizens
It’s about time the NPP government eats a humble pie and apologise to Ghanaians that, they have woefully mismanaged the economy.
It should be spearheaded by the Vice President who is also the chairman of the economic management team.
He might have organise several lectures by now in opposition on similar issues, but his silence is long overdue on this matter.
A government that has consistently exceeded its revenue target since assuming office from 2017 and also borrowed over $240b more than any other government since independence shouldn’t be relying on $6.9b E-Levy to transform the fortunes of the country.
IMF gave Ghana $2bn, World Bank $100m, Stabilization Fund $250m,
European Union €85.6m, Bank of Ghana Gh¢20bn, etc for covid recovery.
Again Ghc55m was spent on food during lockdown in Accra, Kasoa and Kumasi.
Ghc48m spent on PPEs for SHSs.
The Auditor General’s report suggests that, an amount of Ghc12b has not been accounted for.
The president found it appropriate to increase salaries of his cabinet members by 70% and enjoy allowances on top, rent private jet at the expense of the tax payer unaccounted for, etc and expect the citizens to be quiet?
The time to be angrier as citizens is now than never.
