The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has alleged that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has laid in the same bed with the leaders of the various Trades and Labour Unions across the country to select only party faithful to attend the government’s Town Hall Meetings on E-levy being held across the country.

The staged selection would mean that the supposed attendees of the meeting would agree with the government’s position on the E-levy. This would then be communicated as though all the residents in a particular area are in support of the E-levy.

Prosper Puo-ire levelled these allegations against the ruling party when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East. He said this was one of the many reasons why the NDC chose to boycott the E-levy Town Hall Meeting in Wa, the Upper West Regional Capital.

“The intelligence we have gathered is that this government is in cahoot with the leadership of many of these Unions to select NPP people to come and sit in for them. It is intelligence we have gathered and we are acting on it because we deem it credible”.

“The Town Hall Meetings, whether the NDC goes there or not, it will not change the mind of the Finance Minister who is intransigent in this matter,” he said.

Mr. Puo-ire, the Upper West Regional Communications Officer for the NDC, speaking on the same platform, 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.
