If We Don’t Pass E-levy And Mobilise Resources, Foreigners Will Continue to Dictate Pace of Our Dev’ts – Ursula



If Ghana does not wean itself from seeking aid from other courtiers, foreigners will continue to dictate the pace of the country’s development, Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has said.

Making a case for the introduction of the E-levy in the 2022 budget statement, she said in order to be truly independent, Ghana would need to increase domestic revenue mobilisation to undertake the needed development.

Speaking at the Government Townhall meeting on the E-levy proposal in Koforidua on Thursday January 27, the Ablekuma West Member of Parliament said ” so long us we depend on loans they will dictate the pace of our developments.”

“We need to find the way to increase domestic revenue mobilisation,” she added.

“We are talking about a Ghana beyond aid, we need to be able to finance our own development and stop the dependence on either loans or grants or aid from other countries if we are to be truly independent.”

The Townhall Meeting forms part of the stakeholder engagement the government is undertaking on the E-levy proposal.
