NPP MP Receives 'Heavy Backlashes' From Ghanaians After Making This Revelation About E-levy On TV

Member of Parliament for the Effutu constituency who doubles as the Deputy Majority Leader, Afenyo Markins has received massive criticism from Ghanaians after an interview on the PM Express show, Joy News. Earlier during the day, some rumors had it that the majority were willing to reduce the 1.75 percent levy drastically to 1 percent. However, Afenyo Markins revealed that based on the consideration of the Finance Minister representing the government, the proposed 1.75 percent tax on electronic transaction has been reduced to 1.5 percent. He stated that it will be reflected in the budget soon.

This means that, the best that Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo and Ken Ofori Atta could do was to reduce the percentage by an insignificant 0.2 percent.

Ghanaians massively reacted when they heard this statement from him. Although it was not new to their ears, most Ghanaians were sad and angry at the same time at how the Honorable Member could proudly make that announcement to the people who voted them into power.

Micheal Aboklam reacted, "These are the times that we are in. Because of politics, great and men of integrity are becoming dishonorable just because of money and pleasure. Afenyo Markins has lost his moral right as a man".
