E levy Will Change Lives Of Ghanaians For Good – Stephen Amoah. Dr. Stephen Amoah, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Nhyiaeso, has stated that the Minority in Parliament will not be able to prevent the government from passing the Electronic Transactions Levy (E-Levy), a controversial planned tax policy.
According to him, the E-Levy is a requirement for the government to put the economy back on track.
He feels this will have a big influence on the average Ghanaian.
This will be passed in a matter of time and the E-levy will change lives of Ghanaians for good – Stephen Amoah.
He stated the minority is acting out of fear in an exclusive interview with TV3.
He feels the Minority’s decision to reject the levy is just and an attempt to take the light from the Akufo-Addo-led administration.
“We will pass it, we, we will pass it at the right time, they can’t do anything. We are in government.
If they claim they want to make us unpopular, why won’t they stop?
Because they know this is going to transform and change the lives of Ghanaians, they know this is going to reverse the consequences of the Covid, they know this is going to put our fiscal space in the right perspective and they are afraid that Ghanaians will continue to build their goodwill and confidence in this government”, he said.
Mr. Amoah also urged those who want the levy’s 1.75 percent rate cut to back up their claims with science and statistics rather than “projecting from nothing.”
