The popularly known Ghanaian politician and New Patriotic Party, NPP Stalwart who is an economist has undoubtedly sparked massive stir, debates and arguments across all social media platforms after he boldly sent another brilliant message to the incumbent President, Nana Akufo Addo over the introduction of the most anticipated ‘momo’ E-levy in Ghana.

Most prominent politicians, Members of parliament and Ghanaians as a whole have undoubtedly voted against the introduction of the 1.75% ‘momo’ E-levy considering the current economic hardship in the country as the prominent economist and NPP stalwart has recently added his voice in other to convince the incumbent President, Nana Akufo Addo over the most anticipated issue.

Speaking in a recent interview with the Daily Graphic, Kwame Pianim took the privilege to share his immense opinions and thoughts over the introduction of the most anticipated ‘momo’ E-levy in Ghana even though the government clearly knows that its citizens aren’t in agreement with the new policy.

The popularly known Economist made it clear that, the incumbent government should abandon the decision to introduce an electronic transaction as an innovative way to generate revenue from Ghanaians aside advising the finance minister, Ken Ofori Atta to find other efficient means to improve the economy of the country than planning on generating revenue from Ghanaians.

“This is not the time for jerky manoeuvres”, Kwame Pianim emphatically stated.

Whilst suggesting a brilliant idea for the incumbent government in other to generate revenue aside abandoning the implementation of the most anticipated ‘momo’ E-levy, the economist highlighted that, the incumbent government should introduce the toll booths and other initiatives which will not affect the livelihood of Ghanaians since the economy wasn’t stable enough.

“Kindly restore their toll booths to protect the fresh foodstuff markets that have developed around them. If not restored quickly, we may do damage to the rural economy and especially the women traders there. The tax is an anti-technology progress and may undermine the significant progress being achieved in financial inclusion for the unbanked”, Kwame Pianim emphatically added.
