We will abolish E-levy if we win in 2024 — Asiedu Nketia

General Secretary of opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia says NDC will scrap the electronic transaction levy (E-levy) if they win power in 2024.

General Mosquito as affectionately called by party folks speaking at the “Yentua” demonstration yesterday said the NDC will cancel if the ruling government managed to pass it.

“We are not against taxation. Taxation is for value addition. But we will not sit and watch the government to keep robbing us. The E-levy is not taxation, it is daylight robbery. The alternatives are there. Who in his right senses in this country asked the Minister for Roads to argue that we abolish the road tolls and convert the toll booths to toilets and washrooms?”

“The fire will keep burning so long as we have a government that operates with impunity,” he added.

“We will abolish it within the first 100 days we assume power. It is not taxation. It is daylight robbery. Taking people’s capital from their pockets,” he added.
