Information Minister, Hon. Kojo Oppong revealed that these new taxes are important to pay for some of the free things enjoyed by Ghanaians during the COVID-19 pandemic — one of the such things is the free water supply.
From the onset, the Government promised that the things are free but now Mr. Oppong ciaims a wide gap of debt has been created, hence, Ghanaians need to be taxed more to fill the gap.
Reacting to this, John Dumelo said this actions from the Government is a clear case of deception.
In a Facebook post, he wrote:
…..when you lie to people that you giving them free things, only to come back and say “oh remember what I gave you”, it’s time to pay, that’s deception!
