The Ghana Revenue Authority has reacted to the trending news of a nine-year-old boy named Oswald, writing a letter about his requests for Our Day celebrations items.
As YEN.com.gh earlier reported, Oswald was showered with so many gifts beyond his imagination as over 50 companies came out to promise and donate different packages.
What GRA said
In a post after the grand exchange of gifts took place in Oswald's school, the GRA indicated on their verified Instagram handle that they were watching closely.
In a rather hilarious post, they stated that although Oswald himself is too young to be taxed, his teacher who also received a lot of gifts must be ready for them.
In their own words followed by laughing emojis:
"This boy is too young for tax but somebody should tell Mrs Appiah to get ready for us"
