The National Democratic Congress' Youth Wing has announced they will embark on a big demonstration known as 'Yentua Demonstration' against the Electronic Levy Bill (also known as E-levy) in Parliament. Meanwhile, the Majority Leader has given the latest update on the E-levy.

The Electronic Levy Bill, popularly known as E-levy was first introduced when the Finance Minister was reading the budget statement for 2022. The Bill meant that the government will deduct 1.75 percent of any amount one sends to the other electronically. Meanwhile, the bill has seen very stiff opposition by Ghanaians and the Minority in Parliament.

In a statement signed by the National Youth Organizer (NYO) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), they announced that the wing will embark on a very serious street protest on February 10, 2022.

The NYO of the NDC, George Opare Addo mentioned that it has become urgent for them to demonstrate against the controversial Levy since " the young people of this country are frustrated and tired of the happenings in the country.”

The demonstration even though will target the dropping of the E-levy by the government, the statement mentioned other activities of this government that this demonstration will seek to address.

 “The government should rescind its desperate efforts on the Electronic [Transactions] Levy, end widespread corruption, redeem young people from mass unemployment, pay outstanding arrears to workers and end the UTAG endless strike immediately.” Portions of the statement said.

In the letter that was addressed to the Inspector General of Police, Dr. Dampare mentioned that the Demonstration will start at 7 am at the Obra Spot.

“Young people are fed up and will resist across the country the continuous deterioration of the governance of this country. Petitions will be presented to the President at the seat of government, Jubilee House, and the Right Honourable Speaker of Parliament at Parliament House.” Portions of the statement by the NDC youth wing said.

The latest update on their demonstration is that the IGP, Dr. Dampare is yet to grant the go-ahead to perform their demonstration on the said date. We will wait for the IGP's official statement directing them to go ahead or rescind their decision.

This is because, before a group demonstrates in Ghana, they have to get a go-ahead letter from the Police before they can proceed.

Do you agree with the NDC youth wing?

Do you think the IGP will fail to give them the go-ahead statement or do you think the IGP will allow them to proceed??

Would you like to join them for the demonstration?
