Ghanaians Are Now Paying The E-levy Because They Say The NDC Misinformed Them – Presidential Staffer

The E-levy has been one of the most talked about levy in the past 8 month. Since the first day the tax was mentioned Ghanaians have had reasons to question why this tax was necessary. The opposition NDC also started a campaign against the passage of the tax. In the end the levy was passed and the implementation started in May. However, the inflows of the tax haven’t gone as expected.

The government expected over 6 billion cedis in a year but this has sadly failed with about 7% of the intended revenue raised. On TV3’s New Day, Dennis Aboagye, the Director of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development at the Jubilee House noted that there are no facts to say that the levy has failed. According to him there is rather evidence that Ghanaians are now ready to pay more.

Dennis mentioned that he has conducted a survey and has realized that Ghanaians are now angry with the NDC for misinforming them about the e-levy. He noted that he has his own survey agency and Ghanaians are saying that since they started paying they have realized the tax is a good one that will bring development to the nation

“People are beginning to realize that the levy is good. A lot more are about to embrace it to contribute to national development. Ghanaians have realized that the NDC lied to them. Ghanaians now know the truth and are ready to pay” Dennis Aboagye said.

This comment from Dennis sounds rather insulting because the percentage of revenues raised is a sign of whether Ghanaians are happy with the tax or not. Is it the case that there is now going to be more inflows so as to raise the revenues coming in to match 6 billion cedis expected? Are Ghanaians really happy and ready to pay the tax?
