Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta has said the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) led by President Akufo-Addo will find a way to convince the Minority Caucus in Parliament to accept the E-levy.

Mr. Ofori Atta speaking to the media in Ho noted that the country can not do things the same way and he has the hope that by the end of the debate on the 2022 budget, the Minority would understand why the 1.75% E-levy must be implemented.

“In terms of everybody not liking taxes, always will be (like) that, so we have maybe a month of discussions of parliament, but once the objective is clear, we’ll get to some efficiency.

“So, it’s not an unfamiliar position with opposition, but I’m sure we all have the good sense of one language, the republic in hand, and we’ll get there as one people,” he said.

The 1.75% tax on electronic financial transactions was proposed in the 2022 budget statement presented before Parliament by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.
