Lydia Forson has said the majority of Ghanaians are depressed because of hardship.
She made this assertion in a recent post on Twitter.
While the citizens are struggling to survive, the popular actress stated that the Ghanaian leaders are interested in imposing more taxes on them.
“When you think about how hard things are in this country, it can easily send you into depression. In fact I’m almost certain a majority of us are battling depression; we just force ourselves through it each day. Worse is that we’re being led by people who don’t care,” she tweeted.
Lydia Forson further wrote: “A lot of people are unemployed, those who aren’t, barely make enough to survive each month. Between transportation, accommodation and food, you barely have enough for anything else. But your leaders believe, let’s TAX them some more.”
A few days ago, an increment of Value Added Tax (VAT) to 2.5 percent was announced by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
