NDC Promises To Abolish E-Levy In The First 100 Days Of Power
If the NPP passes it and wins power in 2025, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) claims it would remove the Electronic Transfers E-levy.
The NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, addressed the media at Obra Spot at the Nkrumah Circle before of the Coalition of Concerned Ghanaians (CCG) demo, describing the E-levy as daylight robbery.
“The fire will continue to burn as long as we have a government that functions with impunity,” he says.
“We will abolish it within the first 100 days we assume power. It is not taxation. It is daylight robbery. Taking people’s capital from their pockets,” he said.
“We are not against taxation. Taxation is for value addition. But we will not sit and watch the government to keep robbing us. The E-levy is not taxation, it is daylight robbery. The alternatives are there. Who in his right senses in this country asked the Minister for Roads to argue that we abolish the road tolls and convert the toll booths to toilets and washrooms?” he added.
