"You said either E-levy or IMF, so scrap E-Levy if you have finally opted for IMF" — Ablakwa

The MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has asked government to scrap the Electronic Transfer Levy e-levy following the decision to engage the International Monetary Fund IMF for economic support.


He said government mentioned either it seeks the IMF's support or implement the levy which it did at all cost. After finally agreeing to seek IMF assistance, the lawmaker is urging the government to do the needful and scrap what he calls an unconstitutional and repugnant E-Levy as soon as possible.

He said this on Thursday, July 1, 2022 in a Twitter post following the announcement by the government to go to the IMF. Ghana will hold formal talks with the International Monetary Fund IMF on a support package, the government has said, only days after hundreds took to the streets protesting mounting hardship.

The cabinet gave its support for the decision at a meeting on Thursday, following a phone conversation between President Nana Akufo-Addo and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva.
