The Founder and Leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana, Kofi Akpaloo has alleged that Ghanaians will be forced into some charges by the government which will be “dangerous” for them to survive in the coming months.
He explained that he had first-hand information about some ‘Tax and VAT’ charges the government was ready to impose on the citizenry.

According to him, government is on a mission to tighten the current hardship which is already ‘killing’ the people.

“The government is on a suicide mission; I am highly informed that from October 1, this year, the government will introduce ‘VAT with holding’ which is going to be seven per cent in addition to tax which was eight per cent.

“This introduction will be outrageous and the government should rethink about the decision or it will frustrate the people,” Mr Akpaloo cautioned.

His comment comes after President Nana Akufo-Addo in an address to the Ghanaian community in New York, on Monday made reference to the depreciation of the Cedi, and conceded that things are difficult in the country but his government was working to resolve the economic hardships.

“We have to approach the foreign exchange matter medium to long-term by expanding our supply base, that’s not a crisis, they’re difficulties the system will be able to accommodate.

“I urged the President and his government to work to resolve the hardships Ghanaians are facing since businesses are going through hardships already, if the new Tax and VAT charges are implemented, the country will collapse.

“The government should rethink because the citizenry don’t need any additional sufferings and must work harder to revive the ailing economy,” Mr Akpaloo bemoaned. –
