Dr. Emmanuel Kwabena Marfo, the Member of Parliament for Oforikrom Municipal speaking on Oyerepa Morning Show this morning has urged Ghanaians to put more focus on paying taxes rather than depending on abroad for loans and grants.
He explained that, in these covid times, every country is trying to make use of their internally generated revenue to fund projects in their country and therefore Ghanaians must do same. On that note he pleaded with the people in the country to rethink about the E- levy.
When asked about his plans for the constituency, he said their main focus is in line with the budget of the nation as well as that of the municipal since that will be the source of funding for their projects at hand.
He added that m, with where we are as a country it will be good for us to improve on our revenue mobilizations since it’s one of the best ways to get enough money to fund projects in our communities
He also said it’s in their plans to start the Oforikrom interchange this year, start the building of a Hospital at Kokoben and also complete all the police bangalows
