A Ghanaian businessman turned politician, Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Freedom Jacob Caesar or Cheddar, has indicated that the recent media war against him over his tax obligations is only an attempt by government to disgrace him and tame him from pursuing his political ambition.

Taking to his Twitter page, Freedom Jacob Caesar noted in a video that he has worked for almost 22 to 23 years in Ghana and have paid taxes and continue to pay tax to the government of Ghana.

According to him, he is aware of his tax obligations and as businessman, he always ensures he pays his taxes hence the recent claims of him evading tax or failing to pay taxes is a wrong move by government.

Freedom Jacob Caesar makes reference to his real estate business where he indicated that he had imported over 1500 containers and all the necessary duties and taxes have been paid.

He said, as at last year 2023, he paid 20 taxes and continues to make efforts to pay whatever there is to pay.

“Government wants to disgrace me by publishing my pictures on front pages of newspapers. This face cannot suffer disgrace. My strength comes from the Lord.”

He however noted that he is ready to meet government or GRA over any claims of taxes and when indeed, he is owing “Let’s talk so I pay you. It is not about disgracing me.”

“…And for those at GRA, if they think they have seen or discovered something, they can call me so we talk over it because I am a citizen of Ghana. But what I continue to say is that, Ghana must wake up. We need to talk to government so that whatever we need, we can also get as citizens. There are no jobs in this country, and we cannot continue to tax the few who are working, that is why I want to come and create more jobs so that the taxes can work for our development.”

“We are all paying. People at Makola are suffering, people at Kantamanto are suffering, people at Kumasi Kejetia are suffering. We are suffering oo, we are suffering,” he said.

According to him, as citizens, we cannot see what the government claims to be doing for us, hence Ghana needs “change” and averred that the New Force is alive and forging ahead in strength.
