Ghana My Country🇬🇭: The Struggle Continues
The plight of the ordinary Ghanaian keeps worsening with every passing day. After just a week of increasing price of utilities by 30%, the government has then decided to increase Value Added Tax (VAT) from 12.5% to 15%.
It’s now apparent we are now living under a dictatorship rule rather than the democracy we preach. This set of crooks care less of what harms these untaught through decisions cause the ordinary Ghanaian.
In the wake of all this turmoil, the government still continues to appoint new ministers: meaning more funds are needed to pay the salaries,allowances and even fund their travels.
The disheartening part about this matter is that this newly appointed ministers have no use whatsoever; in a sense that they have no quota to contribute to help in the development of our country .
Rather they ride in luxury cars and sit in their fully furnished air conditioned offices doing nothing and taking luxury vacation trips; all of which are paid with tax payers money.
Issues like this is what increases hardship in Ghana.
When the tax payers money can’t fund these useless spending, they just increase taxes in order to cover their expenses. Nothing can be shown as an achievement by any minister after this useless spending spree.
The increase in VAT to 15% has resulted in an increase in telecommunication costs. Last night, I was notified by my service provider MTN, that from 7th February they will review the costs of their products and services as a result of the increase in VAT.
This is no good news to any MTN subscriber.
Our fervent prayer as Ghanaians is that we pray for a government who would relief us of this plight we are currently facing as a country.
God bless our homeland Ghana, and make our nation great and strong🇬🇭.
Thank you for your attention
We just have to find a way to help fight this Ghana. We just have to hope for better days and years to come.
One of the important things to remember is that government does not care about the people except to extract money from them. Corruption runs deep as the roots of the biggest trees in the world in these places. The only way to improve it is to start with local leaders and politicians and make sure you force them to respect the people of your area. If they don’t get them voted out of office and elect better leaders. If every community does this it has waves of effects on the larger country and can make everyone’s life better. It’s not easy but it’s the most effective way to change!
That would have been the best solution. This corrupt people however spend huge amounts on the electorates; who because of this small amounts vote them into office again and the cycle continues.
