Alfred Kojo Thompson who is a communications team member of the New Patriotic Party has urged the media to use their platforms to educate Ghanaians on the budget and make them understand how it is going to help our country progress. Alfred Kojo, Speaking on Newday on TV3 with Jonny Hughes.
He said it saddens him to see Ghanaians talk about their budget proposal which is yet to be approved. He knows all the noise is going on because the toll booths have been closed. But from our budget, it was supposed to be closed after it has been approved. The roads Minister got it wrong there.
"I want Ghanaians to relax for the NPP because we have deployed the suffer to gain approach in the budget. This is the 1.75% e-transactions levy that the government is introducing. You may think the levy is here to burden us, but this is our way to save this country and stabilise the economy."
"Ghanaians will start to see progress in the next year or two. They shouldn't listen to the NDC because they are power hungry. As for the rise in fuel prices it is from the international market. We should relax, because the suffer to gain approach will make you suffer for some time, but then you will enjoy at the end."
