It Is A Death Sentence And Cannot Be Discussed In Parliament - Hon. Fuseini Says About E-levy

As a showdown takes place in Parliament today on the 2022 fiscal year budget that was presented by Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, Ghanaians are anticipating the final outcome of the voting. It promises to be an exciting in the House as both sides of the house prepares to defend its position on the proposals.

It is widely speculated that the major determining issue in the budget would be the introduction of the electronic transactions levy and abolition of road tolls. The Minority has literally kicked against the policy measures and called for a review or a rejection. The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu is on record to have registered his displeasure over the nature of the budget.

Earlier today, November 26, 2021, a member of the NDC's Communications Team and Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu constituency, Honourable A.B.A Fuseini has shared his expectations over the voting in Parliament today. He made this statement in an interview on Good Morning Africa on Pan African TV.

The lawmaker has indicated that the Minority has made no changes to their earlier position on the budget. He boldly declared that the budget would not be passed until their recommendations are taken into consideration. He believes that the policy measures are cruel and insensitive, and cannot be accepted.

Speaking further, he described the budget as a death sentence owing to the hardships it intends to impose on Ghanaians. Honourable Fuseini stated that Ghanaians would be disappointed in the NDC MPs if the budget is passed.

He said, "You did not feel for Ghanaians after all the hardships your government imposed on them. The last things Ghanaians were expecting to hear is a tax increase only to be slapped with another E-levy tax. This is a death sentence and Parliament cannot discuss it. Many have not fully understood the E-levy but we will let them know today."
