Renowned actor, entrepreneur and Politician John Dumelo has responded to the Member of Parliament to Nsawam-Adoagyiri Hon Frank Annoh-Dompreh over the E-levy brouhaha.
Honourable Frank Annoh-Dompreh made a statement in which he indicated that the reason why the President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo led Government has decided to impose the E-levy is to enable the government provide employment and infrastructure.
“The e-levy seeks to provide funding to tackle youth employment and build social and digital infrastructure. It is a proportional tax which also accounts for low income earners. Let’s support government to implement this tax to fund the very things we need as a people” Hon Frank Annoh-Dompreh said in his tweet.
Responding to the statement from the Lawmaker, actor John Dumelo stated that many Ghanaians are not in favor of the E-levy and therefore the government must cut down it’s expenditure, seal corruption loopholes, reduce salaries of the President,ministers and government appointees rather than for this tax down the throat of Ghanaians.
John Dumelo in a tweet said “Majority of Ghanaians don’t want the E-levy at this point. Cut down your expenditure, seal corruption loopholes, reduce salaries of the President,ministers and government appointees etc. Let’s see some sacrifice first, then maybe, just maybe we can talk about the e-levy.”
