Ghanaians expected President Akufo-Addo to have announced the scrapping of the unjustifiable COVID-19 levy as he lifts all covid restrictions.
Ghanaians also expected the awful E-Levy to be abolished since his government has opted for an IMF bailout.
President Akufo-Addo must be sincere and sensitive to the plight of suffering Ghanaians.
I hope all parliamentarians will come together in the national interest, and take advantage of the mid-year budget review to expunge those two obsolete taxes.
As President Akufo-Addo continues to let Ghanaians down, Parliament cannot afford to fail. May we be the people’s saving grace. 🙏🏾
