The controversial new electronic tax measure, popularly termed E-levy, has received several negative reactions from citizens from all sectors, including Rasbobo.
Government officials say money that will be accumulated from the new will help address some of its needs. Regardless, some citizens and the NDC are still kicking against it.
US-based Ghanaian musician, Charles Taylor well-known as RasBobo in an interview with Dan Kwasi Prince of Adinkra Tv, said the new tax measure is unnecessary and pointless. He also added that Ghanaians are not supposed to pay the tax.
“I don’t think it’s necessary. Nobody has to pay e-levy. It is not done anywhere. It doesn’t make sense. Our leaders are desperately trying to push it on us. Then it means something is wrong somewhere.”
He bemoaned the continuous hardship in the country and stated that he would have relieved members of government from their duties if he had the opportunity to do so.
According to the ‘Move Your Body’ hitmaker, most of the Ghanaian politicians have secured generational wealth for their children, hence they pay zero attention to the plight of the poor masses.
The introduction of the E-levy bill introduced by the NPP government has since left the nation divided on the topic. Some Ghanaians are against the electronic levy bill and the government on the other hand is persisting to pass the bill.
