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”.

Reacting to the Kojo Nkrumah’s claim, Miss Forson revealed the topic about taxes is so disingenuous and annoys her.

According to thw actress, every Ghanaian pays tax in one form or the other, however, if Mr Kojo Nkrumah is talking about income taxes then he’s right.

The National General-Secretary for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia presence at Parliament sitting to approve the 2022 budget scared off Majority caucus from appearing at the chamber meeting.

Earlier on GhArticles.com reported that the House of Parliament has rejected the 2022 budget.

The budget which was debated on today and voted for had 137 against it and 0 votes for it’s approval.

This means that the new policies introduced by government for 2022 can not be implemented.

In a report filed by Mynewsghana.com, the Minority had requested the Finance Minister to scrape the E-Levy and make provisions for the Ketu sea defense project.

Though members of the majority were absence from the chamber for almost four hours, they came back after a call from the minority to Ghanaians to call on their MPs to part take in the debate and voting.

Asiedu Nketia an uninvited guest was seen seated at the public gallery seat in Parliament to witness the debate and voting of the 2022 budget.

His presence scared off the majority caucus in Parliament who then called for his sacking from the house.

When their call for General Mosquito as he popularly called, to be sacked got backfired they walked out of Parliament in shame.

Following that, social media is buzzing as Ghanaians sing Asiedu Nketia praise for saving us from the E-Levy tax which many Ghanaians are against.

Speaking after the meeting was suspended by the Speaker of Parliament, Mr Asiedu Nketia noted that he has been a member of Parliament, a citizen of Ghana and a member of the board in Parliament so he has every right to attend the meeting as part of his right as a Ghanaian.

He added that, sitting at the public gallery seat makes him a good citizen of Ghana who wants to know what the MPs are really doing for Ghanaians.
