NDC Fears Ghanaians Won’t Vote for Them If E-levy Is Passed – Egyapa-Mercer



Andrew Egyapa Mercer, the Member of Parliament for Sekondi has said the approval of the E-levy will set the grounds for victory for the ruling NPP in the 2024 elections.

According to him, the opposition NDC’s entrenched position on the bill is due to fear of losing the next elections if the bill is given the green light in Parliament.

Speaking on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ morning show, Egyapa Mercer said the E-levy will provide eniugh revenue for government to fund developmental projects, pay salaries and without going for loans.

“If government takes the E-levy, available revenue will be used to pay salaries and statutory funds and interests on loans.

“That new revenue will allow us raise revenue for development without going in for loans. If this money gets into the hands of government, the NDC is afraid that Ghanaians will not vote for them in 2024. That’s their reason,” he stated.

He said the NDC should rather bring alternatives rather than fighting the levy.
