We can’t wait to vote out NPP govt – Abossey Okai spare parts dealers
Spare parts sellers in Abossey Okai are dissatisfied with the government, citing fears about the negative impact of recently enacted levies on their operations.
They voiced dismay because they expected the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government to be business-friendly, only to see what they saw as harmful taxing initiatives.
The dealers encouraged the government to create a stable business climate to help the economy flourish.
“The country and everything inside it are messed up, and everything has changed, including the food we consume. Everything is taxed, and we have no idea what the tax is being used for. One spare parts vendor reported spending GH¢6,000 for a container and charging GH¢20 for an item that used to cost GH¢5.
“Some two years ago, we were selling Toyota Vitz for GH¢35,000, but it is now selling for GH¢70,000, and the cost of spare parts has also shot up due to high import duties and the unstable exchange rates, and all we look forward to is voting this government out,” said another dealer.
