Ghanaian actor and comedian, Clement Bonney known well as Mr Beautful has rebuked the country’s government over its luxury spending.
According to the famous actor, the introduction of the electronic transactions levy (E-levy) is pure nonsense that should be vehemently opposed by every Ghanaian.
Speaking in an interview on Castle FM, Mr Beautiful lambasted President, Akuffo-Addo for his extravagant spending and the wastage he made with all the loans he borrowed from foreign nations ever since he assumed office.
“In the history of Ghana, Nana Addo has borrowed huge sums of money than any President but has wasted all those monies frivolously”. Mr Beautiful stated.
“The little money left in the mobile money accounts of Ghanaians too you are eagerly following it up to go and waste it.”
“If the sheep that went for grazing haven’t returned how then do you send more sleep to go and do the same? E-levy is pure nonsense” he fumed.
Electronic Transaction Levy (commonly known as E–levy is a tax applied on transactions made on electronic or digital platforms. The levy which has been passed and made law will be applied to mobile money payments, bank transfers, merchant payments, and inward remittances.
Its operation is expected to start on May 1, 2022, according to the Finance Ministry.
