I Am Happy Parliament Passed E-Levy – Akufo-Addo
The passage of the Electronic Transactions Levy by Parliament has pleased President Akufo-Addo (e-levy).
The controversial E-Levy Bill was approved by Parliament on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
President Akufo-Addo delivered this year’s State of the Nation Address (SONA22) in Parliament on Wednesday, saying that despite the House’s lengthy and fractious processes, “I am happy that the House has, finally, found it possible to pass the e-levy.”
During a Minority walkout, the Bill, which was debated under a certificate of urgency, was accepted at a lower rate of 1.5 percent than the original 1.75 percent.
The Bill is expected to be signed into law by President Akufo-Addo.
“I want to thank Members of the House for making this possible,” he added.
