Sammy Gyamfi, who is the Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic (NDC), has said that, all Ghanaians care about at these current difficult times, is for the government to scrap off the "thievery taxes "such as the e-levy; and that, although his party (NDC), has promised to abolish the e-levy, Ghanaians cannot continue to pay until 2024, when the next general elections take place".
Making one of his funniest comments ever, Sammy Gyanfi said, “We are tired of paying the e-levy, it is not a tax ...it is thievery. We don’t care whether government will go to IMF or to Afghanistan".
Sammy Gyamfi, who is a leader of the Arise Ghana pressure group started further that, “We cannot continue to pay e-levy until 2024. For now, we are dying, we can’t wait till 2024, the e-levy must be scrapped now".
He made these comments in reaction to the ongoing Arise Ghana Youth' street protest, which hit the street of Accra; on 28 June 2022. The demonstration, which was organized by the Arise Ghana Youth; was aimed at putting pressure on the Nana Addo-Bawumia government, to improve living condition of the citizens, and to address the numerous challenges being faced in the country.
