Stop Your Partisan Debate- Richard Ahiagbah Clashes With Felix Kwakye Over MoMo Tax

Former Executive Director of Danquah Institute, Richard Ahiagbah locked horns with Felix Ofosu Kwakye, a former Deputy Minister of Information under erstwhile Mahama government as they engaged in a heated debate over the introduction of the electronic levy on Tuesday.

Debating the 2022 budget on Metro TV, Mr Kwakye called out the NPP goverment for messing up the economy through reckless mismanagement and expenditure. He said the Akufo-Addo led goverment must apologize for failing live up to expectations.

In his views, the introduction of the electronic levy is a direct effect of "the shambolic management of the economy" which will further inflict more pain on the ordinary Ghanaian.

"This is going to be the worst Christmas. People will struggle to put food on the table this Christmas because of the bad policies of this goverment", Mr Kwakye said

But Richard Ahiagbah sharply disagreed. He chided Felix Ofosu Kwakye for engaging in partisan debate which will not help the country in the long run.

He called for a conversation which is national in outlook, arguing, the only way to develop is to raise revenue through taxation.

The NPP communicator contends it is wrong for the opposition NDC to criticize the electronic levy without recommending alternative solutions.

In his opinion, the NDC does not deserve to begin the chance to govern Ghana if they cannot provide tangible alternatives as Dr Bawumia did years back in opposition.

Felix Kwakye however insists the NDC is nationalistic will not join any conversation that will inflict pain on Ghanaians.
