Ghanaian Actor Prince David Osei has expressed disappointment in President Akuffo Addo following government’s decision to tax Ghanaians for the provision of free water and electricity amidst the Coronavirus pandemic last year.
The Ghanaian Actor believes the action by the president makes actors who campaigned for the President in the December election look stupid .
“Pls, Mr President I believe in you! There can be another way of recuperating the money lost other then citizens paying for the free usage of water and electricity you affectionately offered to them. Thank You @nakufoaddo ❤️” , he wrote on facebook.
He added “If we campaigned for #4More4Nana to do more on the premise of free water electricity during the pandemic and we turn around to tax the people, then it makes some of us who championed the course look mindless!”
The government last week introduced new taxes in the 2021 Budget, including a sanitation and pollution levy, a gaming tax and a COVID-19 health levy to help shore up revenue.
The new taxes have since been greeted with mixed reactions, some arguing that it will bring untold hardship to ordinary Ghanaians.
