QueenLet Appeals To Ghana Government

Ghanaian Germany based certified Professional Nurse and a Gospel Artiste QueenLet confirmed, Corona-virus seemed to have gone down but it’s on the rise again in many countries.

Stay safe by taking some simple precautions, such as physical distancing, wearing a face mask, keeping rooms well ventilated, avoiding crowds, cleaning your hands, and coughing into a bent elbow or tissue.

There have been lots of cases in recent times and unexpected deaths among some renowned Ghanaian personalities which have raised eyebrows .

Hence, the sensational SOKAAT Gospel Artiste QueenLet, who is also a nurse in Germany, who recently released two singles; Dear Holy Spirit and Anwanwadwuma (Marvelous Work), under the management of Debrich Group Ghana and Europe.

It seems a lot of people are taking the health rules governing the Corona-virus for granted and she suggests the government should fine (penalty) anyone seen without face mask in an open space.

QueenLet said when people are asked to pay money, they will always bear the rules and regulations that goes with the pandemic in mind.

According to GhanaChurch.com host – Dr Church, the pandemic is an epidemic of an infectious disease that has spread across a large region, for instance multiple continents or worldwide.

Artiste QueenLet suggests places like markets, churches, in trotros, taxis, shopping malls and everywhere that people meet and interact must be mask duty.

From GhanaChurch.com analyst, QueenLet said, Ghanaians are taking the pandemic too light and if care is not taken, it will get out of hands.

Therefore, QueenLet added that, comparing Ghana to other countries, Ghana has done well in terms of managing the pandemic but there must be strong and firm rules to maintain the good work.

Clean your hands before you put your mask on, as well as before and after you take it off. Make sure it covers both your nose, mouth and chin.

CHIN is the protruding part of the face below the mouth, formed by the apex of the lower jaw.

Even more, QueenLet is a talented and gifted gospel musician of our era by Elohim, a prolific song writer, a composer with intelligence Perceptual reasoning in vocal frequencies and calculuses when an uncooked musical data is given to her.
 Finally, QueenLet ministry as a Psalmist is characterised by the manifestation of Elohim’s tangible Presence, resulting in holistic transformation in the lives of participants in the worship experience.
 QueenLet has been called into the music industry to inspire, transform and to unmoor every vessel of God with Elohim’s legal emancipation GRACE in this eschatological age.
 As the season changes and transformation take place in the body of Christ, a mighty finger of ELOHIM has picked another unadulterated voice.

“Fixing and Unfixing It”- Unpacking the Lazy, Unproductive Politicking of Ghana – Kenneth Kuranchie

It is a truism that in politics, creating mass hysteria can be beneficial by way of the ballot box.

If one can find an emotionally charged theme, sum it up with a few catch phrases and put it on the radar of the mass consciousness, one can ride it to the highest political pinnacle.

Such a politician can use this emotionally charged issue like the red flag of a matador waved in front of a charging bull, and lure the bull (the public), literally to the death.

This tactic can be even more beneficial when the targeted politician or political entity carelessly hands over to the opponent golden nuggets and gems that can be used as political tinder to burn and chase the targeted political entity out of office.

History is replete with all manner of politicians who created a cause célèbre (a controversial issue that attracts a great deal of public attention), and then rode it like a rampaging horse to political power. And history is similarly replete with politicians who gifted their opponents the cause célèbre with which to take them out of power.

One such cause célèbre seems to have cropped up naturally (unnaturally?) around the “Fix the Country” campaign, and its counter-campaigners, on the recently introduced tax increases in Ghana, which has led to increments in petroleum products and telecommunication services.

The ‘Fix the Country’ campaigners insist that these measures are causing too much hardship.

The government recently imposed taxes on petroleum and communication
services to pay for the cost of fighting Covid-19 pandemic.

It is true that costs of petrol and communication services have gone up since May 1 st , 2021. The reasons are not far to seek.

Government has introduced a number of taxes for a number of reasons, most, if not all, to take effect from May 1 st , 2021.

An announcement by the Ghana Revenue Authority ahead of the May 1 st listed some of the taxes as
follows;
2. COVID-19 Health Recovery Levy Act, 2021 (Act 1068)
This Act imposes a one percent levy on the supply of goods and services made in the country other than exempt
goods or services; and import of goods and services other than exempt imports.
The Levy also applies to the supply of goods subject to the VAT Flat Rate.
The COVID-19 Health Recovery Levy is not allowable as an input tax deduction
3. Financial Sector Recovery Levy Act, 2021 (Act 1067)
This Act imposes a five percent levy on the profit before tax of banks
The tax is payable in quarterly instalments. However, for 2021, the levy is payable in three instalments
commencing from 30th June 2021.
4. Energy Sector Levy (Amendment) Act, 2021 (Act 1064):
This amendment has added two additional sections, 5A and 5B
5A – The imposition of an Energy Sector Recovery Levy of GH¢20 pesewas per litre of petrol/diesel and 18 pesewas
per kg on Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)
5B – The imposition of a Sanitation and Pollution Levy of GH¢10 pesewas per litre of petrol and diesel respectively.
To do justice to the subject, one must go back and look at each imposed tax, in turn, and establish whether these
taxes are necessary. It will become clear, presently, that some of these taxes are good and beneficial, and some
are outright crass.
Like all controversial debates, no side is completely right, and no side is completely wrong. And interestingly, not
all the possible solutions that could have prevented us getting to this sorry pass, is on the table. And as for the
solutions beyond the screaming, they would simply be lost beyond the cacophony.
Indeed, to do a dispassionate discussion of the issue, the first line of the press statement issued by the Ghana
Revenue Authority (GRA), when it made the announcement on these taxes is instructive. The GRA stated, “The
Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority brings to the notice of the general public, especially
taxpayers that Parliament has passed three new tax laws and amended two existing laws to be implemented in
2021.”
To do justice to the subject, one must go back and look at each imposed tax, in turn, and establish whether these
taxes are necessary.

The statement “Parliament has passed” is especially instructive. In effect, these taxes were approved by the
nation’s parliament, in which the Majority hangs on that majority votes by the closest of margins. It means that the
opposition holds inordinate amount of leverage. Yet, the Majority, representing the government, and the
Moinority, representing the leading opposition party, saw nothing wrong with ALL the new taxes they were to
impose.
Now, are all these taxes necessary? We may need to study each tax in turn.
First, the COVID-19 Health Recovery Levy Act, 2021 (Act 1068), which imposes a 1% tax on all goods and services
emanating from the country.
Without doubt, Ghana’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic was star performance, and a study of how other
nations have fared, should tell us that we are not out of the woods yet. A 1% tax on goods and services, in my
humble opinion, should not lead to increments in prices, if industry were sincere to take a little less profit as a
contribution to the Covid effort. This is especially so, in that Ghana, like the rest of the world, is not out of the
Covid menace yet. It is all too possible that the world may need to undergo a second wave of a more virulent strain
of Covid. Government can only take the steps necessary to be taken to save lives, if government is certain that the
people on whose behalf it takes the tough decisions, would follow it when it comes time to pay up. This is not
partisanship. This is reality. However, it is all too clear that the nature of politics we do in this country is a politics
fuelled by a ‘scorched earth’ policy, that is, destroy everything in your path, including the positives, if necessary, in
order to capture the state, because your principal aim is not to build, but to capture the nation, steal as much as
you can, and when the people catch up with you at the ballot box, as they surely will do one day, to hand over until
you can trick them to give you the mandate in a few years’ time. That is the NDC’s position, which is why it makes
very little noise in parliament, and raises Cain out of parliament, because the Covid tax is good in the short,
medium and longterm.
Indeed all political actors should come out in immediate support of the COVID-19 Health Recovery Levy. We
committed the debt, and we need to pay it up. And it may save even more lives, yet.
The second is the Financial Sector Recovery Levy Act, 2021 (Act 1067).
This Act imposes a five percent levy on the profit before tax of banks.
The tax is payable in quarterly instalments. However, for 2021, the levy is payable in three instalments
commencing from 30th June 2021.
My opinion, is that this levy is unnecessary, and should not have been passed in the first place, if our members of
parliament on both sides knew what they were doing. Indeed, the so-called Financial Sector Recovery program is a
self-imposed hardship that the Ofori Atta Administration at the Ministry of Finance has inflicted on itself, and has
no moral and legal authority to pass onto the people of Ghana. This program arises out of the so-called collapse of
some private banks and financial institutions. I believe that if these banks and financial institutions had been
mismanaged and were collapsing, the sensible thing to do would have been to allow them to collapse, so that
other more efficiently managed banks would see the example of perfidious mismanagement.
To assume ownership of these financial institutions, and to seek to manage them as viable business entities, on the
back of tax payers, is unnatural, and if the history of all state banks in the past is anything to go by, would end up
with the same fate. There is also a very real possibility that down the line, Ghana would pay judgment debts for
the decisions taken with regard to these banks. All of which would have been avoided, if we had just cold-
bloodedly stood by and allowed them to collapse.
We should have just let them collapse, so that people learn the necessary lessons.
The third tax is the Energy Sector Levy (Amendment) Act, 2021 (Act 1064). This amendment has added two
additional sections, 5A and 5B.
5A is the imposition of an Energy Sector Recovery Levy of GH¢20 pesewas per litre of petrol/diesel and 18 pesewas
per kg on Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), and 5B is the imposition of a Sanitation and Pollution Levy of GH¢10
pesewas per litre of petrol and diesel respectively.
As off the writing of this piece, I lack the exact figures on exactly what amounts the government seeks to make up,
what are the expected volumes of fuel products on which it is presumed to make up the fiscal shortage that the
government seeks to make up with 5A, and the duration of the period in which this levy would remain imposed. A
certain degree of education, on why the levy, and why it is pegged at the current levels, and for how long it is to be
imposed, would have been instructive. However, whatever, Ghanaians have still not forgotten the Energy Sector
Recovery levy, whose operations remain in great opacity to date, and the mention of whose name send both NDC
and NPP into great shivers.

With 5B, I dare say that it is one of the crassest decisions taken in our history in recent times, the so-called ‘Borla
Levy”, and parliament should very speedily go back into sitting and scrap this levy. Indeed, no member of
parliament, particularly those in NPP and NDC, should have the nerve of acknowledging the hardship that
Ghanaians go through, because Ghana does not need to impose collective taxation on a sensitive product like fuel
to ensure that we manage sanitation and pollution effectively.
It is a tax intended to rake in free money, hundreds of millions of dollars, for a particular company in Ghana. It is
totally immoral, and should be scrapped forthwith, and it is scary that any government would seek to bring about
any such law, and that a group of 275 men and women, who live on the taxpayer, would seek to impose such an
irresponsible tax on the same tax payer.
To the ruling government, the screaming that we are hearing from the population, castigating the government, is
purely self-imposed, and if we the members of this ruling government are not careful, we are just hammering the
nails in our coffin, for just thirty silver pieces.
We should remove the Zoomlion “Borla” Tax before it sends us to opposition, sooner than later.

(Okomfo) Priestess Dr Patricia Asiedu aka Nana Agradaa

Mօnᥱy doubler and spiritualist, Dr Patience Asiedua, popularly known as Nana Agradaa, has been arrested.

Nana Agradaa, known for her moneymaking ritual, ‘sika gari’, was arrested by a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority on Tuesday night.

Two TV channels – Thunder TV and Ice1 TV – that allegedly broadcast money doubling content at Kasoa in the Central Region, were also shut down for operating without licenses.

The team seized two pieces of equipment each used in the alleged illegal transmission from both premises.

This was announced by the Minister for Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful on her social media page on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

Information available suggests the TV channels owned by the self-styled traditional priestess have been operating without authorization for years leading to their closure.

The state’s action follows recent concerns about the broadcasting of inappropriate content in the media space by persons parading themselves as spiritualists

It is on the heels of the gruesome killing of an 11-year-old boy allegedly by two teenagers for money ritual purposes.

Below is the Minister’s full post:

“At about 2200hrs on 20/04/2021, a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority, stormed the premises of two satellite television stations, namely, Thunder TV and Ice1 TV, who were illegally transmitting without licenses, at Kasoa in the Central Region

The team arrested the offenders among which included the owner of Thunder TV, Patience Asiedua, popularly known as Nana Agradaa, and seized two (2) pieces of equipment each used in the illegal transmission from both premises. Nana Agradaa advertises her “Sika Gari” on her TV station, which she claims is her personal god that multiplies money with some rituals she makes. She has hence admitted to this illegality and is currently in custody assisting with further investigations.

The influx of unregulated television stations on air has led to the promotion of certain content which may affect public order, public morality, and the rights and reputation of others. As such, efforts are underway to rid the system of this canker and reduce overcrowding on Ghana’s airwaves.”
