Scrap the e-levy, fuel taxes to reduce hardship on Ghanaians – NDC to Akufo-Addo

The opposition party contends that tax reductions and other measures by the government might provide assistance for Ghanaians.

Sammy Gyamfi, the NDC’s communications director, told the media in Accra that the contentious e-levy and petroleum taxes should be eliminated.

The cost of life is intolerable, which causes many people to go hungry and to break up their marriages. Many people also slip deeper below the poverty line.

“The immediate repeal of the annoying and ineffective E-levy Act of 1.5 percent on momo and other electronic transactions,” was the demand made by the party.

The National Health Insurance Fee and the VAT Flat Rate’s punitive COVID-19 levy of 1% must be immediately repealed.

“The immediate scrapping of crippling fuel taxes such as the Special Petroleum Tax that has outlived its usefulness, the needless Sanitation Levy (“BORLA” tax ), and the new Energy Sector Levy of 20 pesewas per liter of diesel and Petrol and 18 pesewas per kilogram of LPG”.

The NDC renewed its demand that Ken Ofori-Atta, the finance minister, be fired.

The finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, who has demonstrated to be an absolute failure in terms of economic management, is without a doubt first on this list. Sammy Gyamfi claimed that President Akufo-cousin Addo’s had damaged our economy by taking on enormous debt that his own business, Databank, profited from.

“Today, the mere mention of his name scares away investors and fills every Ghanaian with a sense of unease. The sooner President Akufo-Addo fired his underperforming cousin Ken Ofori-Atta, the better for the economy and all of us. Ken Ofori-Atta has turned into stale water in a bottle.
