Mr President, Listen To Ghanaians For Once – Reactions After Akufo-Addo Posted This On Social Media

Since last year there has been so much talk about the E-levy. According to government communicators, this levy will help build roads and create jobs for the unemployed. This levy has however not pleased many especially from the Minority side of Parliament who have accused the government of overspending and trying to squeeze money from the ordinary Ghanaian.

In a press conference last week, the Finance Minister noted that they have heard of the concerns of Ghanaians and will embark on Town hall Meetings to explain the rationale behind the levy. The government hopes that this initiative will convince Ghanaians to agree to the levy. Well, the Town hall meetings are starting this week.

According to a poster on the Facebook and Twitter handles of President Akufo-Addo, the first session comes off at the Eastern Premier Hotel today and will see Hon. Oppong Nkrumah, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Afenyo Markin and Ken Ofori Atta speaking to those present. This didn’t go down too well with Ghanaians who have showed their grievances in the form of comments on the post.

It is interesting to raise certain questions about the Town hall meetings. What are the costs involved and who is sponsoring it?
