Former Methodist Bishop of Obuasi, Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu, has slammed former President John Dramani Mahama for implying that if the National Democratic Congress (NDC) wins power in 2025, the much-discussed Electronic Transactions Levy will be abolished.

Mr Mahama, according to the outspoken Bishop, would not even have the option to cancel the policy if he were to gain office.

The former Methodist Bishop of Obuasi was also disappointed in the three-time NDC flagbearer for making such a remark, claiming that it was an attempt to manipulate voters.

He also stated that the country's current dilemma will require just wise economic measures to resolve, which is what the e-levy is being collected from the citizens to do.

He is certain that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is on the correct course to help the country recover from the devastation and shocks of the Covid outbreak and the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

"As a result, we should all try to pay so that the government can use the money for development," he said. He urged everyone to support the government's plan to industrialize the country, which is being headed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

When speaking to journalists at the ongoing Methodist's 25th Synod at Mount Zion Methodist Church in Obuasi, Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu stated this.
