Still, You Are Not Poor – NPP MP (Alexander Akwasi Acquah) On E-levy

, If You Spend GH ¢ 100 At The‘Chop Bar’. 
 New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament (MP) for Akyem Oda constituency is making a strong case for the passage of the1.75 Electronic Sale Duty, popularly known asE-levy. 
Alexander Akwasi Acquah argued that the preface of E-levy is a “ homegrown” result aimed at resuscitating Ghana’s frugality destroyed by the COVID-19 epidemic. 
 His comment follows stiff opposition, especially from the Nonage in Parliament backed by the National Democratic Congress who maintains that perpetration of theE-levy will further complicate the plight of Ghanaians. 

Though the government has reduced the rate from1.75 to1.5 to be charged on deals on GH ¢ 150 mobile plutocrat (MoMo) sale, the Nonage still insists it should be scrapped. 
 Some experts want the government to move the sale threshold from GH ¢ 150 to GH ¢ 300 to insure the poor maturity who distribute GH ¢ 100 MoMo a day wo n’t be affected. 
 Replying to this on Adom FM, Mr Acquah saidE-levy is sensitive to the poor. 
 He explained that “ if you're transferring up to a GH ¢ 100 a day, cumulatively you can shoot up to GH ¢ a month, that's all going to be duty-free.” Still, the Akyem Oda MP stated that “ if you have further than a GH ¢ 100 to shoot a day or spend it on lunch at the‘chop bar’ also‘you aren't poor’.” 
Mr Acquah said the challenges with Ghana’s frugality are surmountable with the preface of E-levy. 
 “ All of us need to immolate to make our nation. E-levy is the result and we must each contribute,” he added.
