The war of words is one of the greatest weapons in this life. Usually, the one who starts this gains an advantage and tends to win appeal from people. Ghanaians are currently divided over a new government bill that seeks to tax mobile money transactions. The e-levy according to the governemt will help the government to build roads, pay debts and create jobs for the youth.
Yesterday, Loud Silence Media owned by United States based Ghanaian Kevin Taylor published a story where they mentioned that Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has sent a fierce notice to Ghanaians that the government will not back down on the E-levy. According to the article by Loud Silence, Oppong Nkrumah told Ghanaians to go to hell if they can’t tolerate the E-levy.
Many were confused as to whether the calm Information Minister will actually say that. Well, in a press release today, Wednesday, January 26, 2022, Hon. Oppong Nkrumah has noted that he never made those comments. He explained this this is falsehood and a plot by Loud Silence News to misrepresent and cause disaffection for public officials.
The Minister called on Ghanaians to disregard this piece of information because he as minister will never utter such words. He cautioned those behind this and noted that the government is a listening one and will not be quick to reply Ghanaians harshly.
