Kennedy Agyapong purchases 151,000 Dollar Benz With ‘restante’ ( leftover) money from brain tumor surgery.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North, Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has disclosed, that he purchased a Mercedes Benz with $151,000 remaining money after his Brain Surgery, in the United States of America.
“My hospital bills in America had leftover funds so I decided to treat myself by buying a Mercedes Benz S-class. As I speak to you, I have paid 80,000 dollars in advance but I have yet to receive the car to pay the balance.”
Speaking on Oman FM, the legislator, Kennedy Agyapong revealed that before he could get the new car, he suffered a lot and it has taught him lessons of importance of tax paying.
“What got me angry, I went there – to the dealership and we arrived at 138,000 dollars plus tax of over 8.5% tax. The same tax you are refusing to pay here.”
“Where in Ghana do people pay tax on car purchases?”, he quizzed.
He added that, “after working the amount and tax, it came up to 151,000 dollars. They now told me to pay an extra 10,000 dollars because of scarcity and for their efforts to get me a car. I asked, ‘are you mad? Why did you not add it?”
