Fifi Kwetey made this allegation on ‘NewsFile’ on Joynews television with Samson Lardy Anyenini when he was giving his submission on the 5% tax on Banks’ profit introduced by the government in the 2021 budget.
“The whole problem is that; we are dealing with a government that simply went for broke in an election year. They spent way beyond the threshold whilst today, you and I and the people of Ghana are being made to pay thrice for that electioneering recklessness.
Covid-19 was just not limited to Ghana, covid-19 was happening all over Africa and the world. Have you heard of any country implementing these measures after covid-19?
No country is taking this route as we are taking. The difference is; whereas they concentrated on covid-19, we used covid-19 as an excuse to go for electioneering recklessness. That is the cause of what we are facing today.
They've used the elections to destroy our economy under the guise covid-19 and has come around to penalize the people of Ghana for the kind of decision they’ve made.” – he revealed
