I never said we need E-Levy to evacuate Ghanaians in Ukraine- Afenyo Markin clarifies

The Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament and MP for Effutu Constituency, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin has denied claims saying that the government need E-Levy to evacuate Ghanaians in Ukraine

This comes after the Effutu MP was reported by some media houses to have urged the Minority in Parliament to support the passing of the E-Levy to help raise more revenue for such exercise.

In an interview with Accra base radio station Asaase Radio monitored by Opera Hub, Hon. Afenyo-Markin says he never said the government needs E-Levy to enable Ghanaians students from the war-hit Ukraine.

“I’ve never said that we need E-Levy to enable us to bring down Ghanaian students from Ukraine,”

“I just want to make it clear, those on social media, those who are following that news, I Kwamena Afenyo-Markin, I am careful with things I say in the public space. If I am not sure, I will not say them. If I am saying it too, I am sure I will defend what I am saying based on facts.

“I will never say that E-Levy is necessary or that we should bring in E-Levy so that we can get money to bring Ghanaians from Ukraine, but rather I had made a strong case for us to introduce the E-Levy, especially now that we have this crisis which will have effect on our economy, because obviously import will be affected, export will be affected. The world economy will not be the same and Ghana is not outside of the world economy,” Afenyo-Markin clarified in conversation with Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on Asaase Radio.
