Cheddar slapped with charges for refusing to pay tax amounting to GHC7 million

Nana Kwame Bediako

Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Cheddar, has come under scrutiny for alleged tax evasion, with documents obtained from the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) revealing significant lapses in fulfilling essential financial obligations.

The disclosed figures indicate that Cheddar’s total estimated taxes evaded exceed GHC7 million, prompting questions about his commitment to transparency and financial responsibility, particularly considering his presidential aspirations.

Reports from the Ghanaian Times newspaper and Asaase Radio highlight a pattern of non-compliance with tax regulations based on GRA documents. Between 2013 and 2016, Cheddar incurred penalties of GHC15,222, GHC14,492, GHC13,760, and GHC6,526 for failing to file personal income tax returns.

Although he appeared to comply for the tax years 2018, 2019, and 2020, the concerning trend resurfaced in 2021 and 2022.

Leaked documents reveal significant amounts of tax evasion, amounting to GHC2,088,228 for 2021 and GHC5,096,536 for 2022.

These revelations come at a crucial moment as Cheddar, who has positioned his presidential bid on ushering in a new era of development and change in Ghanaian politics, faces a notable test. The consistent failure to fulfill the fundamental civic duty of paying taxes raises questions about Cheddar’s credibility and suitability for a leadership role.
