Bawumia’s Aide Reveals How NPP Plagiarized NDC’s 2014 Budget As Their 2024 Budget

An aide to Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, Krobea Kwabena Asante has come under attack on social media as he seemingly disclosed how the New Patriotic Party, NPP plagiarized the just approved 2024 budget statement from the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC.

His comments were mainly about the apketeshie tax contained in the 2024 budget statement.

In a post in X, formerly Twitter, Krobea indicated that the said tax was first introduced under the erstwhile National Democratic Congress, NDC John Dramani Mahama administration.

He title his post which was accompanied with a supposed page from the 2014 budget: ” The Akpeteshie tax was actually introduced by the NDC in 2014. The new additions to the excise duty law are cider beer, the vehicle emissions and changes in the rate applicable to some existing lines. ”

Despite the accompanying budget page, commenters were not happy with his reference to the NDC having first introduced the said tax.

Some critics said it was unbecoming of the government to drag the NDC into decisions being taken by the government while others wondered if the 2024 budget was a version of the 2014 budget.

Attention was drawn to the akpeteshie tax by Minority Leader, Cassiel Ato Forson, during an analysis of the budget as presented to parliament last month.
