For Immediate Release 29th. July 2019 

GOVERNMENT SCRAPPING OF LUXURY VEHICLE TAX 

The Coalition for Social Justice has taken notice of government’s proposal in the mid-year budget read in Parliament earlier today to scrap the obnoxious Luxury Vehicle Tax. This is a Victory for the collective struggle of the Ghanaian people. 

We therefore commend all progressive forces who spent time and other resources to join the recent *KUM YEN PREKO DEMONSTRATION* organized in Accra. 

That not withstanding, we have also noticed other proposals intended to heap more taxes on the already over-burdened Ghanaians who are enduring economic hardships as a results of government’s economic decisions. 

The Coalition will address Ghanaians through the media later this week on Wednesday 31st July 2019. 

Thank you 

Signed 

Comrade Awudu Ishaq
