Can NDC, John Mahama offer solid alternative to E-Levy?

    The debate about the proposed Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy) has been healthy and beneficial to Ghanaians.

    Basically, the raging debate is shaping the diverging public opinions on the E-Levy for which reason the largest opposition party – the National Democratic Congress (NDC) – is facing humiliating defeat because right from the word go, the party opted to rely on empty noises and propaganda.

    Anyway, it is their stock-in-trade.

    Again, if it is not empty noises and propaganda sprees from the NDC, then it could be a deliberate misrepresentation or cooked facts just to mislead the public without considering the consequences.

    Anytime, this legitimate question is asked: “NDC, where is the alternative to E-Levy” then they take offence to that.

    At best, in an attempt to defend their position, they would engage in simplistic arguments such as Akufo-Addo-Bawumia led government should focus on fighting corruption and reduce government officials expenditure.

    Throughout the debate on E-Levy, members of the opposition party have advanced their arguments on retrieval of certain GHc12.8 billion captured in a 2021 report released by the Auditor General’s Department, which they said is as a result of corruption.
