Statistically, 91% Of Ghanaians Are Not In Support Of The E-levy – Professor Abdulai Tells Government. May 2022

Speaking at an interview on the Key Points on TV3 on March 5, 2022, Professor David Abdulai has revealed that what has led to the rejection of the e-levy bill was  the way it was introduced to Ghanaians.

According to him, a Conservative 91% of Ghanaians are strongly against the passage of the e-levy bill. He further disclosed that the town hall meetings adopted by the government currently should have been done earlier to sensitize Ghanaians before laying the bill before parliament house.

Professor Abdulai said; “The strategy of the Finance Ministry is wrong. What they did is to put the cart before the horse. This is not the time to now go around trying to hold town hall meetings, get buying from Ghanaians. They should have done that much earlier before the bill was introduced in Parliament. So the pressure on the speaker, in my opinion, is misplaced.”

“ I am saying strategy-wise they should have done it much earlier and then you actually engage the NDC members in Parliament before you even bring it to the floor. Good luck to them but I don’t think the pressure is fair to the Speaker”, he added.

Professor David Abdulai is a senior advisor to the African Parliamentarians Network Against Corruption. He also babbled that the finance minister shouldn’t be shocked at the rejection of the bill by the Ghanaian populous rather, they should devise ways of generating income.

“The speaker will do his best but I think Ghanaians have already made it very clear, 91 percent of the populace have made it clear they are not interested in the E-Levy. The Majority leader mentioned a few days ago that they never expected such resistance even though they knew”, he asserted.
