The former Deputy Minister of Information, Felix Kwakye Ofosu has explained that, there are two things involved for the Minority boycott during the passage of the controversial E-levy Bill by the House in the absence of the Minority.

According to him, there is a good reason for the Minority boycott and they will be explaining it presently.

The boycott, according to Felix Kwakye Ofosu also renders the purported passage of the e-Levy illegal, null and void per the New Patriotic Party (NPP) group’s own reasoning for overturning the rejection of the 2022 budget and the recent Supreme Court ruling.

He explained that, 138 Members of Parliaments are needed for a decision but only 137 were present for the purported passage of the E-levy today.

Explaining further, Felix Kwakye Ofosu indicated that, it is simply not turntable to leave the government that has perpetrated this illegality and forced this draconian tax on you and blame the Minority.

“The Minority didn’t bring a bill to tax anyone. They have fought this bill tooth and nail and will continue to fight it.Blame the unscrupulous Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government that went as far as rolling out a sick man in an ambulance on a stretcher to vote for this obnoxious tax.” He added.
