Accept E-levy or Free SHS will be canceled – Okyere Baafi

Lawmaker for New Juaben South, Michael Okyere Baafi has urged Ghanaians to embrace the controversial Electronic transaction Levy (E-Levy) or have the Free Senior High School policy abolished.

According to him, Ghanaians should accept the much-hated E-levy to prevent the Nana Addo-led administration from going to International Monetary Fund(IMF) for assistance which will lead to the cancellation of the free SHS policy.

“If we don’t pay the E-levy and we go to the World Bank or the IMF for loans, they will ask Akufo-Addo to cancel the free SHS which will affect your children so you must all accept the E-levy and pay it so it helps all of us,” Okyere Baafi told members of his constituency during a town hall meeting.
