The Guarantees Of The President And His Vice: Some other Level Ghanaians Must Take Be aware Of

Because the Finance Minister-Ken Ofori Atta, introduced the Executive’s proposed Digital Transaction tax On seventeenth November 2021, Ghana has since now not been the similar.

The announcement of the e-levy has since divided Ghanaians; inflicting brawl in Parliament, and producing heated arguments amongst Ghanaians in Ghana and on Social media.

The Digital Levy (E-levy), which is to take impact from 1st February 2022, is a price of one.75% on digital transactions above GHs 100. The levy in step with the Finance Minister, would follow to digital transaction like cell cash bills, financial institution transfers, service provider bills, and inward remittances.

The Digital Levy, often referred to as the Momo tax, since its presentation ahead of the ground of parliament, has brought about some clashes between the Majority and the Minority reasons throughout balloting for its approval

Recently, there are ongoing town-hall conferences, by means of the Finance Minister, to teach and persuade Ghanaians; and in addition to provide an explanation for the significance of the well-talked about Cellular Cash tax.

There also are some feedback from the President and a few executive officers, to guarantee the general public, and to remind us of the significance of the E-levy.

President Nana Akufo-Addo in a up to date social midia submit, has often known as on Ghanaians to give a boost to the federal government’s resolution to introduce the 1.75% digital levy.

In step with the president, the e-levy, when authorized would lend a hand the federal government to mobilize income to support the rustic’s street infrastructure whilst offering activity alternatives for the unemployed formative years within the nation.

Listening to the president say this, jogs my memory of he and Dr. Bawumia’s numeral guarantees forward of the 2016 elections.

We nonetheless keep in mind the feedback of Nana Addo and Dr. Bawaumia once they wanted energy. The 2 on quite a lot of platforms mentioned many stuff, and if they have got forgotten…we Ghanaians nonetheless keep in mind all of them.

Talking on Peace FM in August 2020, Dr. Bawumia mentioned “…I dont assume cell cash must be taxed, as a result of most people who use the carrier, are deficient folks, and so if you happen to put extra taxes on it, they’re going to endure”.

Nana Addo and Dr. Bawumia once more promised to transport Ghana from ‘taxation to manufacturing’… and that ‘taxation is a lazy guy’s means’, if this is the case…why then is the Executive seeking to introduce E-levy lately? Is the E-levy now not a tax?

The Reality is, we have now succeed in a degree, the place we now not concern taxes, however the guarantees from our leaders. The various failed guarantees from our leaders; is our primary concern, and now not the e-levy.

After they promised ‘A’ whilst in opposition, and could not ship whiles in energy…they’re nonetheless promising. ‘B’. We want to concern them now…particularly their new guarantees at the e-levy.

If Dr. Bawumia didnt assume cell cash must be taxed, as a result of most people who use the carrier, are deficient folks, and that striking extra taxes on cell cash products and services would reason the deficient in Ghana, to endure, why is cell cash tax coming now…do they now need the deficient Ghanaians to endure? 

Once more…if taxation in step with Nana Addo and Bawumia is a lazy guy’s means, may just that suggests, that the Nana Addo-Bawumia executive is a lazy executive?
