The Chief Executive Officer of Public Sector Reforms Secretariat, Thomas Kusi Boafo has urged Ghanaians to welcome the E-levy policy by Akufo-Ado’s government.
He said accepting the levy is the easiest way out in order to avoid economic turmoil in the country. Speaking on Kessben FM’s ‘Amansan Ntie’ programme, Kusi-Boafo noted that the revenue mobilization of the government is very low, therefore, it has created a huge fiscal deficit, and until the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-levy) is passed, the government of Ghana will abandon the programmes it is pursuing.
“So, Ghanaians must make a choice; we don’t like free education, stop employing our children, don’t increase wages and salary, Kusi-Boafo trigger the sacking of workers…and I’ll do so and there will be no E-levy for anybody.
“There will be no road for you, schools will not be built, there will be no payment of tier two for workers…
“Ghanaians want the government to do all these things and as a listening government…it is on the government to help especially people of Apiate so that God will bless us. This is the time we must demonstrate that we are redeeming the country,” Kufo-Boafo explained in Twi.
