Paying Taxes Must Become Regular Features Of Our Lives” – President Akufo-Addo

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says the only things Ghanaians have not made part and parcel of their lives, since the coming into force of the 4th Republican dispensation, is to make taxes regular, predictable parts of their lives. According to President Akufo-Addo, “our tax-to-GDP ratio of 14.3% compares unfavourably with our peers the world over. The average tax-to-GDP ratio in West Africa stands at 18%, and, indeed, the recommended ratio for ECOWAS Member States is at least 20%. The average for OECD countries is 34%.”  It is no wonder, the President indicated, that American, German, French, Japanese and British peoples, amongst others, can readily find the means to fund their own development, particularly their infrastructural development, wh...

Ejura Government Hospital boss moved to health center after testimony at Committee

The Medical Superintendent of the Ejura Government Hospital, Dr. Emmanuel Mensah Manye has been transferred to Abuakwa Health Centre at Kumasi in the Ashanti region as the Medical Superintendent.

His transfer has been viewed by a section of the public as a punishment and a ‘demotion’. Dr. Mensah Manye confirm...

Achimota School and the Attorney-General’s department have filed an appeal challenging a High Court’s ruling that compelled the School to admit two Rastafarian students. The boys, Tyrone Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea had dragged the Achimota School Board of Governors, the Minister of Education, Ghana Education Service, and the Attorney General to court for refusing to enroll them with the explanation that they had to shave their dreadlocks in accordance with the School’s regulations.
