According to the Bishop, the president while in opposition touted his credentials and said he will never burden Ghanaians with taxes like the then president John Dramani Mahama but apparently, he’s worst.
“When the President was campaigning in 2016, I was in Abosso. He came there and his words were that there is money in this country, but because we don’t have the right people governing the country, it has resulted in brazen hardship. So many taxes have been heaped on us. So, I in particular agreed with him that this country is endowed and that if we get our acts right, things will be okay.”
He further noted that although the Covid-19 pandemic may have had an impact on the economy, the government could do better and take some tax burdens from the people.
“…now what he has introduced is rather causing a lot of hardships. People are suffering and we need to hit it that [President Akufo-Addo] must do something about it.
“It is true that the coronavirus has damaged the world economy but if you look at what is happening, I believe government must do something about it.”
