Your justification for increasing taxes ‘petty’ – NDC man to Bawumia


The Deputy National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described as ‘petty’ Vice President, Dr Muhamudu Bawumia’s justification for the recent hike in tariffs.

The Vice President who is also the Chairman of the Economic Management Team (EMT), rejected claims by the opposition NDC that the Akufo-Addo government acted in bad faith by over-seeing an increase in utility this month.

The opposition party had claimed that the increase in utility was contrary to the government’s promise while in opposition that it will not increase tariffs when voted into power.

Commenting on this Citi TV’s Breakfast Show as monitored by, Mr. Agbana said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) described as ‘obnoxious’, the increment in taxes therefore no one expected them to increase utility when voted into power.

“The NDC standard which the NPP subjected to as incompetent is what they are emanating [and that] clearly defines the incompetent the NPP government,” he said.

Mr Agbana further called on Dr. Bawumia to rather focus on pertinent issues concerning the ordinary Ghanaians because the hardship in the country is becoming unbearable.
