General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has disclosed that the party will scrap the controversial E-Levy if they assume office in 2025 should this current government pass it.
Speaking to demonstrators at the ‘Yentua’ demonstration on Thursday, February 10, 2022, he said the NDC is opposed to the levy and will scrap it if they win power.
He was responding to questions from journalists at the demonstration.
He said the NDC will scrap the levy within the first 100 days of their government.
He said Ghanaians should be assured the NDC scrap the levy should the NPP pass it.
”Let me tell you right here and now. In an unlikely event that this levy is passed, we will abolish it, and it would be the first task to be abolished within the first 100 days of the next NDC government because we don’t see it as taxation. We see it as a daylight robbery. This is not taxation. It is daylight robbery.”
He added that the NPP will only ”chop the money” collected from the E-Levy.
