Sarkodie airs his thoughts on the E Levy. Sarkodie, a rapper, claims that Ghanaians are not protesting the planned Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy) because it is “awful.”
According to him, many are not in favor of the levy since residents do not get to experience the perks that come with paying taxes unlike their counterparts in the west.
Sarkodie noted that he pays taxes outside of Ghana’s boundaries, but he is unconcerned since he and other taxpayers can see how their taxes affect them.
He claimed that there are systems in place and ways for taxpayers to earn more money.
“I pay a lot of taxes outside and I don’t complain because I’m using avenues they made available to make money (it’s only right) it’s not the same here and that’s why we complain not because the “E Levy” is bad. When you broke, a harmless “good morning “ can sound like a tease,” he tweeted.
When a fan inquired about Sarkodie’s thoughts on the tax, he responded after numerous creatives voiced their opposition to it.
Kwesi Pee, Shatta Wale, Lydia Forson, and a slew of others are among them.
With the presentation of the law, Shatta Wale said that the country’s officials are being indifferent to Ghanaians’ predicament.
“Right now you guys make the issue appear like, if you get the opportunity and get your chance, and get into power, you can make whatever choice you want,” he stated in a video uploaded online. Consider human beings.”
He went on to say that while governments understandably want residents to pay taxes, individuals cannot be overburdened, especially when there are no measures in place to relieve economic constraints.
“I believe it’s a little bit too much,” Kwesi Pee remarked in an interview with Hitz. I also believe it should be scrapped because it is illogical.”
