Twitter Turns Bloody As Lydia Forson And Twitter Users Fight Over Kojo Nkrumah’s Comments On Non-Tax Payers Demanding For FixTheCountry

Award-winning Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson says Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah should stop making people think some Ghanaians are not paying their taxes.

Recently, the Information Minister said about 33,000 Ghanaian professional, accountants, lawyers, and engineers are not paying taxes in the country but they are demanding everything to be fixed.

According to him, they should first pay their due 10% taxes before demanding the country to be fixed.

‘Media and Marketing Communication Post COVID-19: a Catalyst for Africa’s Socio-Economic Resurgence’, he said “You have to convince the 33,000 engineers, lawyers, accountants and other professionals who are not paying tax according to the Ghana Revenue Authority, yet, are asking for everything to be fixed that they have to pay their due if we are to rake in the 10% of our GDP and lower our borrowing and you need the help of the marketing-communications professional and the media to succeed at that”.
