You will lose 2024 election if e-levy is implemented — Bagbin warns NPP

Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon Alban Bagbin says the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) should forget about capturing power again in 2024 if the controversial e-levy bill is passed.

“As you go around the country to convince Ghanaians to vote for your party and you, others with big pockets are facilitating parties and when you win power, they get the positions, not you.

“So, they don’t have that culture, they don’t have that understanding and there is that missing link. They come to impose the ideas on you to vote the way to rather take party interest first, not Ghana first.

“We always vote ourselves out of power, which my colleagues in the NPP are doing now. So don’t be surprised in the next elections if you don’t win.

“It is very clear if this your E-levy goes through you have lost the elections,” he said while addressing a forum of former Parliamentarians held at his behest on Thursday, December 23.

His comment comes following the recent debate in Parliament over e-levy which led to a feud between the Majority and Minority Caucuses.
