Parade protest

 

‘You don’t pay taxes and you say fix what?’- Hopeson Adorye blasts Ghanaians

A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hopeson Adorye has taken a swipe at Ghanaians protesting against poor governance and worsening living conditions.

Adorye, who was the NPP's candidate in the Kpone-Katamanso parliamentary election, said those protesting against worsening living conditions do not pay taxes.

“You don't pay Taxes and levies and you say wetin? Fix what #PayTaxesToFixTheCountry,” he wrote on Facebook.

In the last four days, Ghanaians have taken to social media to protest against poor governance and the rising cost of living.

The protestors want the government to fix poor roads, ensure a constant supply of water and electricity.

Meanwhile, some of the online protesters have served notice of hitting the streets on May 9 to push further their demands for sound governance.

They have since written to the police for clearance.

The organizers of the street protest said they chose May 9 to capture the restless spirit of the over 126 Ghanaians who lost their lives at a football match between Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium 20 years ago.

And to commemorate the 26th Anniversary of the Kume Preko demonstration which was led by President Nana Akufo-Addo and others.
