Stop using e-levy to blackmail Akufo Addo’s government — Kennedy Agyapong to colleagues

Members of Parliament(MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has asked members of the majority trying their best to hold the government from passing the e-levy to put a stop to it.

The implementation of the electronic levy (E-levy) has come to a halt and it is revealed that the NPP government is finding it difficult in whipping their members in to ensure that they get numbers to support the e-levy.

It was reported earlier that the lawmaker for Dome Kwabenya Hon. Adwoa Safo had requested she made Deputy Majority Leader before she will fly back to Ghana and vote on the e-levy.

According to her, there should be gender equality in the Majority Leadership in Parliament and until her wish is granted, she is not supporting the NPP to pass the e-levy.

Hon. Kennedy Agyapong speaking in an interview has lashed out at some of his colleagues who are looking at their parochial interest over that of the party that brought them to the House.

He added that all the Majority Members should come together and support the party to achieve its objective instead of their personal interest.

“Stop the sabotage, you people should stop that thing that you have to get positions before. Please if you don’t attend Parliamentary proceedings for 15 days without permission you can be sacked from the august house. All those who have traveled and don’t want to come and are holding the party’s ball, we need to organize by-election for you people. If you don’t want the party leave it. If you don’t want to be an MP anymore leave, no one came to beg you to be an MP. We are sick and tired of your bogus attitudes,” he said.
