An aspiring Secretary on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ablekuma North Constituency of the Greater Accra Region, Frederick Green, has posited that the E-levy when passed would help transform government transform the economy.
According to him, the passage of the electronic levy tax will help generate more money to help the Government further its developmental agenda faster expect expected.
The aspiring Ablekuma North Constituency Secretary made this known during an interaction with a section of the media in Accra last Wednesday.
The passage of the e-levy, Mr. Green further disclosed, would prevent Ghana from running to the IMF for financial support for the development of the country.
He therefore advised the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and other social organisations to stop peddling falsehoods about the e-levy but rather ensure that it is passed for the benefit of the country’s growth.
“I want the NDC to come out clearly and tell the whole world that it shall scrap the e-levy when voted into power in the future” he dared.
The NDC, Frederick Green posited, knows the ruling Government will transform the country massively with the gains from the e-levy and noted that that was why they are speaking against it as a political party.
Mr. Green called on Ghanaians to disregard the opposition view on the e-levy and rather accept it for the betterment of Ghana’s economic development. “The opposition NDC is just throwing dusts into the eyes of Ghanaians with an attempt to prevent the Government unpopular ahead of the 2024 general elections,” he disclosed.
Mr. Green further noted that only a few Ghanaians pays tax in the country and was optimistic the introduction of the e-levy would be pushed many to contribute to taxation for the country’s growth.
According to him, it would be very good if Ghanaians sit down and listened to the E-levy component since the NDC was only poised for power in the 2024 general elections.
“Ghanaians must understand the benefit of the e-levy. It will support Ghana’s investment just like many other developed nations across the globe” he disclosed.
