“The way the e-levy is structured, in two and half years time, the NPP are going to show Ghanaians what they used the e-levy for. The govt will get enough funds to carry out infrastructure projects that will make it look good in the eyes of Ghanaians” he said.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC), after the introduction of the e-levy by the NPP government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo pending parliamentary approval, has indicated their stance of a 100 percent no to the e-levy.
