New taxes to finance Akufo-Addo’s extravagant lifestyle – Ablakwa

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has alleged that the taxes imposed on Ghanaians recently are meant to keep financing the extravagant lifestyle of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

According to the North Tongu MP, President Akufo-Addo must be ranked very high on the league of most insensitive and heartless leaders for refusing to account for his “profligate” travels and yet introducing more taxes.

In a Facebook post, the opposition MP said: “A President who refuses to account for his profligate, sybaritic travels and still seeks to impose even more draconian taxes so he can keep financing his extravagant lifestyle must rank very high on the global league of the most insensitive and heartless leaders. Kill the killer taxes!”

The post is part of the MP’s campaign against the introduction of new taxes in the 2022 budget.

One tax that has got Ghanaians talking is the e-levy, which is a 1.75 per cent tax on all e-transactions which include banking and mobile money transactions.
