Freebies that Politicians Promise are not free, we Pay for them through our taxes – Ernest Kofi Abotsi
The provision of free Senior High School for the citizens of Ghana has become one of the topical issues in the country’s Political space as the major Political Parties in the country, the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party always touch on it in their Manifestoes.
However, commenting on the free Senior High School politics, the Dean of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) Law Faculty, Lawyer Enerst Kofi Abotsi indicated that the free Senior High School policy and other freebies that Politicians promise citizens are not free after all.
Speaking on Joy News’ weekly review program ‘Newsfile’, Kofi Abotsi explained that in reality, all the free things that Politicians promise are not free because we pay for them through the payment of taxes.
Lawyer Ernest Kofi Abotsi said;
“To be honest, in reality, there is nothing free. All these things politicians promise are not free because we are paying for them with our taxes and by this reason, we are actually paying for them, what we are not doing is direct payment.”
