He further said that to ensure our tax revenue is used for its intended purposes as indicated in the 2022 budget, Ghanaians must institute strict measures of surveillance to keep the government on its toes.

 

 

Every citizen of Ghana who has accepted to pay the proposed taxes must responsibly monitor government activities in the country. Moreover, Journalists must take advantage of the Right to Information Bill to obtain information about how funds are used in the various government agencies for citizens to openly criticize and commend the government.

He said the government should rather consider the creation of more avenues for entrepreneurs to commence their businesses. He added that creating 11 million jobs from the proceeds of the E-levy in just the remaining 3years of NPP 2nd term governance is unjustifiably ambitious hence the government must reconsider such targets.
