In a press release signed by the Minority Chief Whip, Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak, who is also the member of Parliament of the Asawaase constituency, the minority caucus has reaffirmed their stance on the e-levy. This was a quick overturn of the statement of the minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu that the NDC Maps will only accept the budget if the rate of the e-levy is reduced to 1%.
Many Ghanaians asked questions as to the reasons why Haruna Iddrisu himself, has not come out to retract his statement. They suspected that there was some sort of internal division amongst the minority leadership in Parliament.
Other Ghanaians threw their frustration on the Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak, since he was the one who had posted that release on his Facebook page.
Bernard Bentum wrote, "I have never trusted in the leadership of the National Democratic Congress in Parliament and I will never. Kelvin Taylor has been right all these while. These people are against the coming back of Mahama but you are afraid of what Ghanaians will do. So you are acting like snakes under grass. You Muntaka, you are included".
