He noted that many companies in Ghana are facing challenges with tax payments, and the tax amnesty would offer much-needed support to alleviate their financial burdens.

“As a Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, I encounter lots of business people on a daily and weekly basis. I can tell you as a matter of fact that, many companies are struggling to pay taxes, and some defaulting companies risk being hauled to the court and all that. This proposed tax amnesty will save many businesses in Ghana,” Mr. Okyere Baafi disclosed.

Furthermore, Mr Okyere Baafi emphasized the importance of the digitalization agenda championed by Dr. Bawumia, highlighting its potential to revolutionize various sectors and create new opportunities for growth and innovation.

In closing, Mr. Okyere Baafi urged Ghanaians to throw their support behind Dr. Bawumia and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the upcoming elections. He expressed confidence that Dr. Bawumia’s leadership would lead Ghana to new heights of prosperity and development.

“I know Dr. Bawumia, I’ve listened to him, we have had several engagements and I’m telling you that this man is passionate about Ghana. He will take us to the next level. Let’s give him the legitimate power to deliver,” Mr. Okyere Baafi concluded.
