If I Make The Mistake Of Voting For The E-Levy, I Will Loss My Seat In The Builsa South - Dr. Apaak

The Member of Parliament for the Builsa South Constituency, Dr. Clement Apaak, has indicated that it's a no for the E-Levy, and if he makes the mistake of voting for it, he will lose his parliamentary seat in the Builsa South Constituency.

Dr. Clement Apaak made this statement on the 'New Day' program on TV3 this morning, 26th January 2022, when he gave his opinion on the E-Levy bill currently in Parliament.

According to Dr. Clement Apaak, the NDC has said that they don't support the E-Levy, but if the NPP is insisting on it, then they should follow the right processes and procedures.

Dr. Clement Apaak indicated that the country is deeply polarized, and he dares say that majority of Ghanaians are opposed to this E-Levy.

"What we have asked for, is for the proper processes and procedures to be followed. So, of you look at the argument that our leaders made on the floor, they are pointing to the processes and procedures."

Dr. Clement Apaak stated that the government can do their consultations, but they shouldn't have waited for the "bus" to start moving because there is nothing to explain since people have already made up their minds that they don't want the E-Levy.

"They've even said that they've done consultations when we went on recess, but we were not consulted, our leaders were not consulted, and I'm yet to see the list of the groups and the entities that they say they have consulted.

If there is any group carrying the sentiment of the Ghanaians who are opposed to the E-Levy, it is us, and we've not been consulted."

Dr. Clement Apaak revealed that after all these consultations, the E-Levy bill is still going to Parliament for a vote, and he can say that it's going to be 137 'No' votes at the minimum.

"Our position now is zero E-Levy, so we will vote against it, and if I make the mistake of voting for the E-Levy, I will loss my seat in Builsa South." He added.
