APC encourages citizenry to pay taxes for devt

Mr Hassan Ayariga The All People’s Congress (APC), has encouraged the citizenry to pay taxes for the rapid socioeconomic growth and development of the country.It called on them not to shirk their responsibility by evading tax to stall progress, growth and development.“Taxation is what is going to help us develop our country and not borrowing because no country has ever developed on borrowing, and I believe Ghanaians want to pay taxes, but they do not want to pay taxes that do not contribute to progress, growth and development,” the party observed.Addressing a press conference in Accra on Monday, dubbed, ‘Post Budget Analysis’, Hassan Ayariga, the founder of APC and the 2020 Presidential Candidate for the party, applauded the government for suspending the collection of road and bridge tolls from next year as captured in the 2022 Budget Statement and Financial Policy.
