The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi, has made a shocking statement about the E-Levy.
A few weeks ago, the controversial electronic transaction bill was passed. It was assented into law by President Akufo-Addo after its passage in Parliament.
While a lot of Ghanaians are not happy about it, Chairman Wontumi has said it is not compulsory.
Speaking in an interview with ZionFelix, the businessman and politician stated that E-Levy is not compulsory.
According to him, it is not like VAT that people have to pay as soon as they buy something.
