A Pro-NPP group calling itself Patriotic Ambassadors for Peace (PAP) has called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to halt the TV License Tax being taken from Ghanaians because it is causing dissatisfaction for his Government.
Addressing the Press in Accra at Sprintex, the group’s national coordinator, Katakyie Kwame Opoku Agyemang, said there is an unemployment issue that government has to tackle first before imposing more taxes on Ghanaians.
“The immigration service forms that was sold to the unemployed Ghanaian Youths for jobs, who ends up been disqualified must be looked at. Further, the price of the form should be reduced due to the unemployment nature of the youth applying for the job,” Katakyie appealed.
The Director of Operations for PAP, Andrew Oppong Amoako, urged President Nana Akufo-Addo to consider some members of the Volunteer groups for appointment.
“Majority of the volunteer groups have competent people who can take up certain positions, so government should consider some of the Volunteers, so that it will motivate unborn volunteers in the future,” he stated.
Andrew commended government for the free SHS initiative and paying of the 3-year salary arrears of books and research allowances of teachers.
