Senior Minister-designate, Yaw Osafo-Marfo seems to be accusing the erstwhile government of the National Democratic Congress of employing “lazy” approach to raising revenue.

Osafo Maafo has therefore reiterated Akufo Addo’s government’s resolve to review Ghana’s tax regime.

Appearing at the vetting committee of parliament, the former Finance Minister argued, the erstwhile NDC administration’s move to impose corporate taxes on companies was a “lazy” way of securing revenue.

Osafo-Marfo forms part of two other ministers who are being vetted before parliament under Nana Addo’s administration.
