The MP for Ningo-Prampram Sam George says it is clear to the NDC, the opposition party that the E-levy not meeting its targeted revenue is not a solution to solving Ghana’s economic issues.
The MP said this after the leading Member of Parliament for the NPP ruling party revealed in a social media post on 27th June, 2022.
Gabby Otchere-Darko’s statement showed that the government has made only 10% out of the estimated revenue the tax could give. Which is just Ghc60m of Ghc600m.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, the MP for the Ningo-Prampram Constituency says it does not surprise him at all with the poor performance of the E-levy as revealed by Mr. Otchere-Darko.
“This needed no divine revelation, it was obvious to any critical and objective mind.
“The projections they were making were just untenable. Government said that in 7 months, that is from May to December, it was going to make GH¢4.2 billion of the E-Levy, meaning it was going to make about GH¢600 million every month, meaning it would make an average of GH¢20 million every day.”
“In May, they made GH¢1.8 million a day on average. If you implement a policy that delivers 9%, you have failed woefully,” he further made his point,” he added
According to him (Sam George), the government’s bad performance shows how incompetent it is to ruling the economy.
