- Ross Berizaya Ayine has also testified to the 30% cut in import levies on cars
- He said he was impressed and pleased with the NPP government
Ross Berizaya Ayine, a son of former deputy attorney general, Dr. Dominic Ayine, has testified that the 30% reduction in import levies on cars has indeed taken effect.
According to him, he cleared a car on Thursday, April 4, 2019 for a cheaper amount that he did previously.
He explained that in March 2019 he cleared a Honda Civic Touring at GHS31,000, but cleared the same model of car with the same specifications GHS18,000 on April 4, 2019.
This, he said, transpired just a day after Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia announced a 30% cut in import levies on cars.
In a Facebook post, Mr. Ayine said he is very pleased with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government for reducing the import duties.
“I’m very impressed and pleased with the NPP and Dr Bawumia for the reduction in import duties. This is a great move, and, by far, it’s the best policy in governance and in the right direction. God bless all who contributed to this success and to the brain(s) behind this splendid move.
“I cleared a Honda Civic Touring at GHS31,000 just last week and clearing another under GHS18000 today. If all successive governments could initiate these kinds of policies, Ghana, as a country, would be a better place to live; politics isn’t about colours but reality,” he wrote.
Dr. Bawumia announced a 30% reduction in import levies on cars during Wednesday, April 3's Town Hall meeting.
The vice president also addressed a series of issues, including the depreciation of the cedi and other economic matters.
He attributed the cedi’s fall to directives from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), insisting the Bank of Ghana’s hand was tied.
He also announced that the benchmark value of imports has been reduced by 50%.
