Christian groups mount pressure on NDC to accept E-levy

Christian groups in Ghana have called on the leadership of National Democratic Congress(NDC) to soften their stance on the controversial Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy) so government can pass it.

Leaders of some Christian groups paid a visit to former President John Dramani Mahama and leadership of NDC on Monday, February 14, 2022 to convince them to accept the 1.75% electronic levy the ruling government has intended to implement so that peace prevails in the country.

Leaders of the Christian groups who visited the leadership of NDC include, presiding bishop of the Methodist Church Ghana, Most Rev, Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo, the Chairman of the Pentecost church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye.

The Minority Caucus in Parliament has asked the ruling government to completely drop the 1.75% e-levy with the claim it will impose hardship on Ghanaians.
