If E-levy will send NPP to opposition why don’t you pass it? — Wontumi quizzes Bagbin

Ashanti Regional chairman of ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Bosiako popularly known as Wontumi has asked Alban Bagbin the Minority Caucus why they’re against the E-levy if it will cost NPP in 2024.

Chairman Wontumi speaking to the media in a recent interview said the National Democratic Congress claim the electronic transaction levy (E-levy) will take the NPP to opposition in 2024 then why are they not voting in favor of the bill for it to be passed.

According to him, what the Speaker and the Minority are saying is not logic as if their interest is to see the NPP retain power in the upcoming general election.

The introduction of Electronic Levy was announced by Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta while reading the 2022 budget statement in Parliament late last year.

He explained that the e-levy is a 1.75% imposed on all electronic transactions.
