E-Levy: We’re Not Anti-tax; We’ll Use Taxation When We Win Power-NDC

According to the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia,, the party is not against taxation.

“Since we started attacking this budget, there’s been a misconception that NDC is against taxation and the propaganda has gone on to even indicate that we are nation wreckers: if we are not supporting taxation, how else do we intend to develop this nation?” he stated while speaking at a forum organized by the party to discuss issues surrounding the 2022 budget.

“I want to let everybody know that NDC is not against taxation. Indeed, our philosophy is based on taxation”, he told the forum, adding: “We believe in redistributive justice and taxation is a means of achieving redistribution of wealth in the country”.

Our philosophy is hinged on the belief that once we have come together to live in one society … we believe that there must be taxation and our principle of taxation is: each according to his means”. he further stated.

“So, those who have bigger means will pay more than those who don’t have”, he said.

“So, while we are supportive of taxation, we are very conscious about what type of taxation and how that taxation is implemented”, he continued.

“So, I want to debunk the assertion that NDC is against taxation”, noting: “In fact, when we come back to power, we’ll continue to use taxation but we’ll use taxation in a manner that we’ll achieve the objectives that we have set onto ourselves”, he added.
