Wendy Shay, an artist from Ghana, has resorted to social media to express her displeasure with the excessive import taxes levied on automobiles at the Tema Port. Wendy Shay acknowledges President Akufo-Addo’s commitment to the welfare of Ghanaians in a tweet she sent to him, but she also emphasizes the urgent need to eliminate import taxes, particularly those imposed on automobiles. The gifted musician highlights the dramatic contrast between the cost of buying a car in the US and the excessive duties one must pay when importing one. Wendy Shay gives the example of a $35,000 car purchased in the US that would require an additional $30,000 in import duties, which comes to a mind-boggling 397,707.10 Cedis. The Honorable @NAkufoAddo I know you care about Ghanaians’ well-being, Mr. President, but could you kindly take action to reduce import taxes, particularly on automobiles? “Car import taxes are really outrageous. You spend $35,000 (397,707.10 Cedis) on a car in the US, plus duty of $30,000 ($340,891.80 Cedis). Mr. President, please take action,” she begged.
