The controversial E-levy has raised a hot conversation piece among politicians from the two leading parties (NPP/NDC) as well as the Ghanaian populace at large.
According to the minority in parliament and almost 90% of Ghanaians, the E-Levy should be scrapped because upon all the borrowing, Nana Addo still can’t point to a single developmental project so how can the small revenue that will be generated from the E-levy solve Ghana’s problems.
A handful of Ghanaians have also threatened to boycott the use of Mobile money if the government fails to take a second look at the draconian tax.
There have been concerns from well-meaning Ghanaians that the tax was going to further worsen the hardships of the citizenry since it is targeted a the general public.
