Prosper Puo-ire, the Upper West Regional Communications Officer for the NDC, has confirmed to A1 Radio that the NDC, in the region, has taken to decision to boycott the ongoing Town Hall meeting happening in Wa, the Upper West Regional capital.

The decision, Mr. Puo-ire said, falls in line with the NDC’s position that the E-levy is a regressive tax that would compound the financial burdens on the average Ghanaian.

He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East today, February 21, 2022.

“Whatever that will lead to the development of the country Ghana, you can be sure that the NDC is in it. But we abhor any tacit or overt that is targeted at cheating the ordinary Ghanaian for the parochial interest of a few individuals. We rise against any form of plan or action, whether deliberate or not deliberate that will bring untold hardship unto the poor in society,” he said.

Mr. Puo-ire said since November 2021, when the E-levy was introduced, the NDC has always maintained that it is against the E-levy adding the Party has taken every opportunity to express its position of the E-levy and also proffer alternative solutions to Ghana revenue mobilization drive.

He stressed that “it is not now that we are going into any discussions or negotiations. We have said that the E-levy in whatever form, we do not want it; we are against it. We have spoken out loudly and clearly that the E-levy is not a panacea to resolving Ghana’s economic challenges, it is just only going to add unto the hardship the Ghanaians are already enduring”.

“We have indicated that this government has not demonstrated true faith, it has not demonstrated adequate credibility to warrant the citizens of this country adding more resources to it”.

“Somebody has finished a full bowl of tz and is not satisfied, is it by licking the bowls that would grant him satisfaction?” he quizzed.
