Ghanaians WIll Only Pay Tax When You Cut Down Your Expensive Lifestyle – Sam Korankye To Government

The founder of Royal House Chapel, Sam Korankye Ankrah has told the Government that Ghanaians will not be willing to pay taxes until the government cuts down on profligate expenditures and officials stop living large at the expense of the poor taxpayer.⁠

According to him, once Ghanaians see their leaders sacrificing their comfort for the national interest, they will not hesitate to fulfil their obligations such as tax payments.⁠

The man of God made the call while speaking at a ceremony in Accra, where a US President’s Lifetime Achievement Award was conferred on him.⁠

“We are asking the members of the ruling class to show the example by cutting down our national expenditure, they must punish themselves a little bit and when we see that expenditure is being cut down, if they call upon us to pay taxes, whatever they ask us to pay, we shall pay with gladness and willingness because we all know that we all suffer to gain,” he said, according to⁠

He went further to emphasise the need for governments of Africa to prioritise the welfare of their respective citizenry to avoid extreme poverty, despondency and anger that result in the turbulence that the continent has been experiencing.⁠
