Readers can recall how the introduction of the E-levy generated a lot of public debate as many advised that the E-levy was a way of taxing savings of tax payers. Many Ghanaians including the NDC advised the government to become humble and apply for the IMF programme but the Finance Minister clearly explained that he believed in home-grown policies and not the IMF.
Readers can also recall that during the intense E-levy debate, the Assin Central Member of Parliament also publicly made wild comments that any government that goes to the IMF has failed.
In fact, on 1st July 2022, the Minister of Information revealed that the President of Ghana has finally considered an IMF intervention. This message has created an intense anger amongst a significant number of Ghanaians as many have asked why the government introduced the E-levy when they knew there was a possibility to approach the IMF.
Few moments ago, Kennedy Agyapong also broken his silence on the IMF bail out. He expressed anger at his colleagues indicating that the NPP can not break the eight years because the IMF remains a poor option to recover the economy.
