Ukraine attack: Reports that E-levy needed to evacuate Ghanaian students false

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Effutu Constituency, Mr. Alexander Afenyo-Markin has noticed the broad media report in which he is affirmed to have required the endorsement of the E-Levy to empower government clear Ghanaian understudies from Ukraine is slanted.

He told ModernGhana News following reports recommending that the abandoned Ghanaians in Ukraine must be upheld back home when the disputable e-demand is passed.

On Thursday, February 24, 2022, the Deputy Majority Leader while conveying an assertion in Parliament focused on that amidst world pressure occasioned by Russia's assault on Ukraine, there is a critical requirement for the public authority to be upheld in the assembly of income to pad Ghanaians.

He contended that the circumstance among Ukraine and Russia will affect the economy of the West African nation and thus any road that can be investigated to guarantee the economy remains on its feet ought to be investigated.

"There will be strain on the restricted assets that we have and as a country, Ghanaian organizations who should do well to pay charges they will endure, their organizations won't do well the manner in which they expect, their projections will be impacted, that is the truth and I should carry this to the consideration of us all so any arrangement that will be brought will be found in that light.

"Obviously Honorable Deputy Minority pioneer, you have not spoken into the mic yet on the off chance that you are discussing the E-demand, this is the more significant justification for why we really want it. Assuming you are discussing the E-demand, that was the following point I was getting to, that we ought to assemble around it and track down an approach to creating income as a country to save what is happening since we are not in typical times. Haruna Iddrisu could never have raised this matter at a preferable time over now," Afenyo-Markin said on the floor of parliament.

Responding to the few media reportage, Afenyo-Markin further disclosed to this entrance that what he said was confused and slanted by certain media houses to make naughtiness.

In the interim, the public authority says its Ministry of Foreign Affairs is attempting to guarantee the wellbeing and security of all Ghanaians in Ukraine.
