Ghanaians has criticised Nana Akuffo Addo and his government for taxing citizens to fill the gap which created from the free use of water and electricity during the pandemic, which has brought economic hardship in the country.
Bernard Okoe- Boye, who is currently the Board Chairman of the Korlebu Teaching Hospital has asserted that, government is still spending on COVID that is why the new COVID tax is necessary and not liability.
Speaking on Asempa FM of interesting programme "Ekosiisen" with Osei Bonsu as the host disclosed that, the government is still paying fronline workers, taking care of million of students ( free Senior High School), PPE's for students, paying for test and must pay for 15 million vaccines for Ghanaians.
He applauded the government in the midst of the pandemic, he paid public workers who did not work for about nine(9) months, the government stood on his toes to make sure industries are working. If the President did not tax Ghanaians where do you expect him to get the money to fill the gap?
Government is still spending on programmes that is currently going on. The new tax will help to come out a hole.
