Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings launched the attack when she took her turn at the Institute of Economic Affairs’ (IEA) Conversation Series Wednesday evening.
Konadu said no country has ever seen real economic growth and development by taxing everything, essential mocking the taxing of Pampers and sanitary pads.
“No country has ever developed through over taxation.
“Even a new born baby with the Pampers have taxes on it.
“The government is telling us only a few Ghanaian pay taxes. The NDP wants to differ. Everybody pays tax on rural water, [National Health Insurance Scheme] NHIS – these taxes are on everything that we buy," she said.
She also bemoaned media reports that businesses are relocating to neighbouring Ivory Coast due to the country's power challenges.
“Some businesses have relocated to neighbouring countries because of energy. Ghana needs to look at developing a sustainable energy,” she said.
