This is how much you and I as tax payers are paying for the almost 100 ministers President Mahama has appointed.
Despite the heavy economic crises our nation is going through amidst unprecedented corruption level among senior officials the president seems to care less, no empathy for us whiles he continue to bombard us with taxes upon taxes.
Unfortunately this is the price we are paying for, gross incompetencies.
We are being taken for a ride by these small group of political “elite”. Since we as a nation have decided to sit idle whiles we continue to limp in poverty they shall continue championing miseries to our kitchens. God bless our homeland Ghana.
