I lament the position of Lands Commissioner that has been maintained by an NDC person, who was and still is the stooge of Ibrahim Mahama. He was behind the leasing out and sale of government properties to lazy NDC urchins, backdating of processes initiated pre-2016 elections. But Mr President can please everybody! So I say to Mr President, “Woadarowma Toaso”, but please expedite the prosecution of the NDC thieves, and retrieve our money, Sir. Let us be more circumspect with our criticism, after all, Mr President is very aware of events in this country.

This means that the president of the republic is exempted from taxes on benefits he enjoys. In the USA, the not only pay taxes but his tax returns a released periodically for public consumption. He politically relished the euphoria since he sought to score cheap political points yet he did not take into consideration the fact that his own boss does not pay taxes in this country. Where is the sense of equality and justice when the prez together with his cohorts manipulate tax rates in this country knowing that the prez doesn't pay taxes. Ghanaians and Ghanaian businesses who pay personal income taxes and corporate taxes respectively must rise and demand that the prez must have the law amended as soon as possible.
