The renowned Ghanaian politician and member of the largest opposition party, NDC has recently raised lots of concerns amongst Ghanaians after he boldly came out to expose the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta over the healthcare system in the country.
Speaking in a recent interview on the ” Good Morning Ghana” show, the prominent member of the NDC unexpectedly revealed that, Ken Ofori only paid 6% of the taxes Ghanaians pay in funding the NHIS and healthcare sector and later visit expensive hospitals around the world for personal medical treatments.
” I have done a calculation, since this government came to power, the finance minister has not paid over Ghc 5. 5 billion since 2017; has not gone into the funding.
Why does anybody have the discretion to do that? The people who write laws for us, when laws are written, wrote laws for smart and stupid people.
So, if you are so smart and you know everything, the law is rigid. In 2021, the finance minister paid only 6% of how much money he had collected from the fund.
Can anybody explain that? When the finance minister fell ill, he went to the most expensive in the world.
What business does anybody have traveling to the most expensive hospital in the world when they are ill and collecting taxes on behalf of Ghanaians who are paying monies for that express purpose and paying only 6% for 2021″ , Twum Boafo emphatically revealed.
