She expressed her dissatisfaction with the policy’s implementation because it is punishing.

“I am not pleased with the e-levy. “This is a punitive tax designed to defraud people,” Nana Yaa Jantuah stated on Saturday’s Key Points on TV3 with host Dzifa Bampoh.

The implementation of the e-levy will begin on May 1, according to Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.

“We had some meetings with the Controller and Accountant Generals Department (CAGD) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), and they said they should be able to put their system together right at the beginning of May,” he told Roland Walker of TV3 in Parliament after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo delivered the State of the Nation Address on Wednesday March 30.

After the third reading in the House, Parliament passed the E-levy on Tuesday, March 29. During the second reading, the Minority staged a walkout. They left after Mr Iddrisu stated that the NDC MPs are unified in their opposition to the proposal.

Members of Parliament (MPs) from the National Democratic Congress have filed an injunction against the policy’s implementation.

On Tuesday, April 19, opposition MPs filed an application with the Supreme Court to stop the e-levy reductions from taking effect.
