E-Levy: NDC Gov't Will Repeal Act In 2025 - Mahama Assures Ghanaians

In a previous NDC-related story, YEN.com.gh reported that former president John Dramani Mahama assured that the next elected government of the party in 2025 will repeal the E-Levy Act.

In his address to Ghanaians under the theme Ghana At A Crossroads Monday, May 2, 2022, he reiterated that the NDC is not against taxes in principle but described the Electronic Transfer Levy Act, 2022 (Act 1075) as ''distortionary and burdensome''.

''We in the NDC do not oppose taxation as a principle. We'll not be pretentious and couch fanciful slogans to condemn the principle of taxation like the NPP did in the past.
''We are, however, implacably opposed to distortionary and burdensome taxes like the E-Levy that only forces Ghanaians to endure more sufferings,'' he said.
