Those Against E-Levy Haven’t Traveled Outside-Diana Asamoah

Famous Ghanaian gospel musician, Diana Asamoah has asserted that all those against the approval of the E-Levy presented in Parliament weeks ago by the Finance Minister of Ghana haven’t traveled beyond Ghana before.

Diana Asmoah who is a staunch member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) defended government’s intention of imposing electronic Levy on transactions in the country stating that taxes are used in developing a country.

“If you go to Italy, the toll is automated. You will not see anyone there collecting tolls but you are compelled to pay. You pay 10 Euro on your going and the same on your return. Everything is taxed”, she stated while speaking to blogger Zionfelix on the E-Levy.

She mentioned that Ghanaians kicking against the E-Levy need to travel out of the country to see how the system operates elsewhere.

“In Ghana, it is because some people have not traveled before that is why they speak like that [against paying taxes]. If we were to explain the objective and the need to pay the E-Levy, it would bring massive developments. Ghana would have been so beautiful,” she stated.
