Gov’t aiding big businesses to rig after presenting $100m tax exemption requests in their favour- Ablakwa


    North Tongu lawmaker, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has accused the government of aiding big businesses to rig the system.

    He stated that this week alone, the government has presented tax exemption requests worth $100million to parliament in favour of these businesses.

    This comes at a time the country is claiming revenue shortfalls hence, the introduction of the E-levy bill in Parliament, Mr Ablakwa said.

    He added “A government claiming revenue shortfalls and desperate to implement an obnoxious and regressive E-levy which is most punitive to the poor should not be aiding bid businesses to rig the system.”
