Ghanaians will pay tax when we come to power but this government should reduce cost - Asiedu Nketia

The General Secretary of the NDV, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has made it clear to Ghanaians that, his party is not against the payment of tax but the tax will be used as per the will of the people.

"So, I want to debunk the assertion that NDC is against taxation...In fact, when we come back to power, we’ll continue to use taxation but we’ll use taxation in a manner that we’ll achieve the objectives that we have set onto ourselves" He said.

He added that, his government will be very cautious about the kind of tax they will implement into the system that will not affect Ghanaians.

Asiedu Nketiah also advised the current administration to cut down public expenditure instead of increasing tax burden on Ghanaians.

"We are talking about the shortage of revenue as against expenditure and we want to bridge the gap. Nobody is talking about cutting down expenditure." He said.

He added that, Ghanaians are already paying enough and the best way the government can get enough money is to reduce cost or expenditure instead of taxing Ghanaians.

He made this statement in his recent 2022 forum of NDC about the 2022 budget.
