Ghana’s Highest rapper, Sarkodie has been quizzed to talk about the E-levy debate and he has shared his thoughts.
The E-Levy bill being introduced by the sitting NPP government to tax electronic transactions has been a hot topic in Ghana over the past few weeks.
Whilst many join the NDC to oppose it, others believe it is a good initiative for Ghana to generate its revenue than relying on foreign aid.
According to those who argue against it, it will impose further hardship on Ghanaians and the money accumulated from it might even be misused by the government.
Taking to Twitter, Sarkodie says he does not believe Ghanaians are kicking against the proposed Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy) because it is “bad”.
According to him, many are not in support of the levy because citizens do not get to enjoy the benefits that come with paying taxes unlike their counterparts in the west.
Sarkodie explained that he pays taxes outside the borders of Ghana but he does not complain because he and other taxpayers see the impact of their taxes.
He stated that there are systems in place and avenues available to taxpayers to earn more.
See his tweet below :
I pay a lot of taxes outside and I don’t complain because I’m using avenues they made available to make 💰( it’s only right ) it’s not same here and that’s why we complain not because the “E Levy” is bad . When you broke, a harmless “good morning “ can sound like a tease https://t.co/7s25NqnbJN
