RE: The NPP Govt Petroleum Policy - An outrage


Yes.

This is just a fantastic piece.

JAK has just surrounded himself with a bunch of educated greedy people who care less about the poor Ghanaian but thmselves.

If NPP cared about Ghanaians, They would realise that there are other ways to have collected the money. For example They could impose a special tax on all foriegn carriers travelling to and from Ghana. Last year there were approximately 1million people using our airports. If the government imposed an extra tax of US50.00 per paseenger this would have given the country an extra 50million dollars or approximately half a billion cedis. if this formula is applied to all the other exits and ports out of the country they could easily have raised the 3.1trillion debt for TOR.

They could also impose levies on us ghanaians leaving abroad.

Or increase indirect taxes like VAT

But does NPP care about the poor? NO!!!!
