  • If the Npp Government thinks the general masses are ok with the E-levy imposition ah they should seek further engagement and bring it to referendum. Let every reasonable Ghanaian vote on it and let see the outcome to guard parliament.
  • We shall resist kokoo aduro E-Levy
  • E Levy has become panacea to all our problems in Ghana under the leadership of Nana yenka masem Akufo and Alhaji Bawumia led NPP government.
  • If I am in the minority group, by now I allowed e-levy passed. This was what we voted hence no one should blame the minority for not standing their ground for e- levy pass. They have than what an opposition suppose to be doing. That independent candidate and the NPP MPs
