Lawyer Godwin Edudzi Tamekloe, a member of the Legal & Communications Team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed worry over the fueling of expensive vehicles for the transportation of the President’s chair around the country.
According to him, transporting the President’s Chair across the country is not really a thing to be worried about but the fact that there is a dedicated V8 for that purpose is worrying and amounts to an affront to the people who voted him into power.
Speaking in Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana Show, Lawyer Edudzi stated that “what is the justification for providing a whole V8 to carry the Presidential chair around. If you see the kind of taxes this incompetent government is imposing on the good people of this country.”
He believes that President Akufo-Addo who has promised to protect the public purse has no right to use state funds to support his spiritual life.
“Please who should be funding the President’s spirituality? the tax payer? that the tax payer, if the president has received his spiritual direction, why should that be the burden of the Ghanaian tax payer?”
“To think that a government that is telling you and Ii to sacrifice, to share burden with them, to tighten our belt, they don’t even have a belt hole, so where is the leadership.”
