The Minority Feel They Are Smart But We Have 'Spies' In Their Midst – Osei Kyei Mensah Reveals

Last week saw the passage of the controversial electronic tax levy. The levy has generated so much brouhaha since last year November. The government mentioned that the levy will go in a long way to construct roads, create jobs etc. The opposition also argued that the tax will end up impoverishing Ghanaians since they are already impoverished.

In a controversial manner the tax was passed and though the opposition have taken the issue to the Supreme Court, the new tax is to take effect effective May 1. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, the Majority Leader has opened up on what really happened. According to Osei Kyei, there was no surprise on Tuesday when the bill was presented to the house. He explained that the Minority knew about the bill and even recalled some of her members who were abroad or were due to be in Tamale for the Interchange commissioning.

Interestingly, Muntaka and Murtala had mentioned earlier that they had intel that the bill will be brought to the house. They had noted that they have people within the NPP who provide intel. Osei Kyei Bonsu in an interview with Evans Mensah on PM Express mentioned that if the Minority feel they are smart they should know that the Majority also have counter intelligence and have moles within the NDC. He pointed that surprise is part of the game. He explained that they had intel on which of the NDC members will be absent and their locations and so chose the day to pass the levy.

Osei Kyei Mensah mentioned that there was no one in the ambulance stationed at Parliament on that day. He casually said that it could have been a decoy to send panic to the camp of the NDC. He boldly declared that he knows the bill was passed with the right quorum because by the time the question was put there were so many NDC MPs in the house.
