Artiste manager and entertainment critic, Emmanuel Barnes, popularly known as Mr Logic, has reacted to the E-Levy.
E-Levy was passed by the Majority side of Parliament despite the opposition by a lot of Ghanaians.
He urged Ghanaians to be responsible when speaking on UTV’s United Showbiz program on Saturday.
“Let’s start being very responsible. We always like to complain and that’s why we don’t develop as a country. Complaining left and right. Fuel this fuel that. E-Levy this E-Levy that and so on. Poverty is a choice. You decide to be poor and so if you’re poor don’t make certain statements and drag people along with you,” Mr Logic said.
He also had a problem with those who blame NDC and NPP for their woes.
“Whether it is a capital tax, general tax, or whichever tax you are paying. Let’s learn how to abide by these things. Once we have accepted that Ghana is a developing country, we must not blame government for our problems. We shouldn’t blame NDC or NPP. It is Kwame Nkrumah that needs to be blamed. Look at South Africa, they had white people in their country yet they allowed them to build the country and they gradually took over. Now they both live together there. But as for Nkrumah he said we can be able to handle our own affairs. Have we been able to handle our affairs?”
