Government is forcing e-levy on Ghanaians — Gyedu Blay Ambolley

Ghanaian veteran musician, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has waded into the argument surrounding controversial electronic transaction levy bill.

A lot of Ghanaians have kicked against the implementation of the electronic transaction levy (E-levy) with the claim that they do not benefit from taxes they pay.

Musician Ambolley has also spoken against it and he thinks the government is trying to force the e-levy on Ghanaians.

He said: “I think that the E-Levy is being forced on the citizens of Ghana. There is no way that they’ll come and tell us that it will bring a profit of 6billion cedis and over. Before, you people took loans over billions and told us that you were going to build roads and nothing happened. We are not kids.

“People need to pay if they are flexible and working. There are no jobs, nothing to show for, and the little money in my pocket too you want to take it? People are hungry and hungry men are angry! Trash it!”
