The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has said that should the NDC win power in 2024, it will cancel the e-levy within 100 days.

He said the NDC does not condone such “daylight” robbery as perpetrated by the ruling NPP and so it would cancel it in the unlikely event that the policy is passed.

He noted that the NDC is not against taxation because that is for value addition.

What the NDC is against, according to Aseidu Nketia, is that the government would seek to rob the people of Ghana under the guise of E-levy, which he also described as “daylight robbery”.

He even questioned the wisdom in the government abolishing road tolls and converting tollbooths into toilets and washrooms.

The fire will keep burning so long as we have a government that operates with impunity,” Aseidu Nketia warned.
