Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu says Ghanaians should blame the opposition party NDC for the hardship in Ghana.
The Majority Leader of Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu who has replied to assertions by the minority that the system will not be able to withstand the problems posed by the 2022 Budget Statement.
The majority’s final point on the 2022 budget statement, according to the politician from the majority’s side, is that the Minority cannot say that the system is difficult because it was difficult before the NPP took power.
He claimed that the country was incredibly difficult, to the point where the NDC enforced condom and contraception charges.
Remember that Ghana’s finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, has stated that an electronic transaction levy (e-levy) will be implemented in the 2022 budget. “Widen the tax net and rope in the informal sector,” he explained.
The proposed levy is a 1.75 percent charge on the value of electronic transactions that will take effect on February 1, 2022. It includes payments made with mobile money, bank transfers, merchant payments, and inward remittances.
Except for inward remittances, which will be borne by the recipient, the charge will be borne by the transaction’s originator. For transactions up to GH¢100 ($16) every day, there is an exception.
