The e-levy has become a central topic for discussion in Ghana since the Government through the Ministry of Finance proposed the electronic transaction tax during the last year’s budget for 2022.
Many Ghanaians have expressed their displeasure since the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, announced the government’s decision to introduce the electronic transaction levy.
Many have taken to social media to chastise the move and have described the policy to loot the average Ghanaian of the little income he makes.
The Regional Minister for Western Region, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah addressed a gathering at a meeting to throw more light on the e-levy tax imposed by the government.
Addressing the gathering, Mr Kwabena Darko-Mensah said poor people in Ghana will be exempted from paying the e-levy tax.
He went on to describe a poor person as someone whose yearly income is GHC70 in Ghana.
Following that, GHOne TV presenter, Serwaa Amihere has reacted in shock to the Western Regional Minister comments on the e-levy saga.
She quizzed how much does the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) pay extremely poor Ghanaians monthly.
