The Minority in Parliament few days ago rejected the 2022 “Agyenkwa” Budget Statement due to the inclusion of some components in the Budget Statement – a major one being the 1.75% E-levy. The Budget Statement is to be reviewed and brought back before Parliament for approval.
An NPP loyalist [judging from the Twitter Username - @ManLikeBawumia] believes that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) wanted to the ones to introduce the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy) that is why the NDC MPs are trying all they can to push for its to be rejected. The party loyalist arrived at this conclusion based on some statements made by the General Secretary of the NDC in relation to the E-Levy.
The tweet of the party loyalist reads, “The absolute reason the NDC are rejecting the E-levy. They want to be the ones to introduce it so they can have enough money to wreck. Wow”.
Several Ghanaians reacted to the post of the party loyalist. Check below for few of the reactions:
Do you think that scrapping the road and bridge tolls and introducing the E-Levy is the best and that this would yield the expected results that the government is looking for? Would you support the E-levy if the percentage is reduced from 1.75 to 1 or 0.5? Let us know your thoughts by leaving all your comments below.
