MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS LIVING OUTSIDE GHANA: RISE-UP.
STOP THE HIGH CHARGES OF IMPORT DUTIES ON PERSONAL VEHICLES and GOODS.
My fellow Ghanaians, my fellow travelers who are scattered around the world, ARISE and let the leaders of Ghana hear your voice.
We are Ghanaian travelers like yourselves, and we want to draw your attention to a problem in our country Ghana, which has been going on for a very long time, but now it has become worse.
We are calling all Ghanaians living outside Ghana to add their voices for this noble crusade. Sign-in with your name, the country of residence, your phone number, your e-mail address, and your testimony no obligation.
BECAUSE WE WILL BE SILENT NO MORE.
The problem is about the high cost of vehicles duty, or clearing duty, or import duty, that we have to pay at Tema and Takoradi harbor.
Why is it that the duty is so high? Where is all the money going to?
When the country had and is still receiving grants from the developed countries?
There is no welfare system in Ghana, there are no public parks in Ghana, the bridges and roads are deteriorating.
The only high way (Tema motorway) is falling apart. The leaders dont have any program for the people of Ghana or what so ever.
Everything in the country has been by the people, especially those outside the country like yourself.
Our financial contribution to the country is more than $20M PER WEEK (CASH).
We are the back bone of the economy of our dear country (Ghana).
Yet our leaders (NPP or NDC) have zero support for Ghanaians abroad, they still slap us with very, very high chargers of IMPORT DUTY on our personal vehicles and goods.
We are trying to create jobs, whiles the leaders are killing jobs.
Yet, we pay so much on vehicles sent home by Ghanaians living outside Ghana.
These vehicles spent few days at the port, and still we pay VERY heavy import chargers and duties.
How can someone pay (GHC50,000.00) which is almost $12,000.00 AMERICAN MONEY or more on A a single personal vehicle?
What is the reason?
The sad part is that, if you are not able to pay such a ridiculous amount,
the next thing you see is that, your vehicle will be on the street, being driven by someone else.
that, your vehicle has been auctioned out below the high cost of the duty they were asking for.
The question is this, why does it cost so much to get your own property from the port as a citizen of Ghana?
NO LOGICAL ANSWER.
My fellow Ghanaians, Ladies and gentlemen, the time is now, join in with your brothers and sisters and speak up, send us your testimony.
Tell a friend, bring it up at your local meeting, in your churches, at parties and everywhere possible and forward this news to your friends and families.
Let us arise with one voice and change this policy for ourselves and our children.
Thank you and GOD Bless You.
PS: If the leaders want us to invest at home, then they should remove the high cost of duty on goods and on cars that we send home NOWWWW.
