Ghanaian comedian Michael Blackson, who lives in the UK, has criticized the Ghana Revenue Authority for levying excessive charges.
He claimed in a tweet that he had sent goods from the United States of America to Ghana in order to assist his unemployed relatives.
According to Michael, the garments he purchased were worth $10,000, but customs demanded an additional $10,000 for clearing costs, or they would be put up for auction.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote:
“I have cousins in Ghana with no jobs and no income. Because the country lacked jobs, they wanted to open a store if I could help.
“I purchased about $10k of items and when they arrived thru DHL, customs said they will need to pay $10k to retrieve them. IT MAKES NO SENSE @GhanaRevenue.”
