John Dumelo has described as deception the government’s move to have Ghanaians pay for the freebies they enjoyed during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
Ghanaians had been given free water and electricity for a little over six months to alleviate the burden the coronavirus put on them because of the period of lockdown where everyone was asked to stay home as a way of containing the spread of the virus.
This week, however, there has been the talk of the government asking citizens to pay taxes that are aimed at recovering the money that was used in providing free things for them during the lockdown.
Many Ghanaians have been sharing their thoughts on the matter.
The 2020 NDC parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, who lost his bid to go to parliament, John Dumelo says that the government’s move is nothing but a deception as they cannot claim to give people free things and then turn back and ask them to pay for them by levying further taxes on them.
John Dumelo, the actor-turned-politician, shared his thoughts on the matter when he took to Facebook to make it clear to the people of Ghana and the government that it just deception and nothing else.
“When you lie to people that you giving them free things, only to come back and say “oh remember what I gave you”, it’s time to pay, that’s deception!”
