“I Will Increase VAT Whether You Like It Or Not”- Prez. Akuffo-Addo Tells the NDC
News of VAT increment has been the predominant discussion for both the print and digital media all through today. It has been necessitated by a post from the Facebook book page of close confident and nephew of president Akuffo-Addo, Mr. Gabby Otchere Darko.
The NDC, like always, has taken over the media space expressing their disappointment in the decision which is yet to be made public. “It will be over our dead body if we sit down quietly and watch the president introduce this VAT increment”, they state. If he pushes and introduce it, all of us will go on a heavy naked demonstration .”, they told us.
The president has however displayed his resolve to go ahead with this decision. He tells us with his impeccable slang that;
“The tax increase is a very important necessity. I will go ahead to increase the VAT by tomorrow whether the NDC like it or not. And if they continue to make noise , I will ask Dr. Bawumia to put their general secretary in his pocket like Kwesi Nyantakyi did to me.”
