Former President John Dramani Mahama has admonished the government to check areas eating into the public purse rather than heaping numerous taxes on the citizens.
“Our MPs and the leadership have done very well in holding government accountable and on behalf of the general membership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), I expressed our appreciation to them,” he added.
Mr. Mahama joined the NDC Members of Parliament for the closing session of their 2022 Caucus Retreat on Monday.
“It is important for MPs, as stressed by other speakers and the leadership, to always remember that they are representing the people and are also in the House to represent the NDC.
According to Mr Mahama, after the economy has been collapsed by President Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr Mahamadu Bawumia they want to compound issues for the Ghanaian people by introducing new taxes.
“These burdensome taxes will erode business capital, especially at a time when Government has crowded out the private sector’s access to credit by its voracious appetite for borrowing.
“The debt crisis, for which there are very few tangible projects to show for, and worsening economic hardship of Ghanaians amply demonstrate the negative impact of a collapsed economy,” he reiterated.
