Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, Deputy Minister of Education, has urged Ghanaians to embrace the e-levy pending Parliamentary approval.
The e-levy, which was disclosed during the 2022 budget reading by the Finance Minister, has courted controversies and seen the Members of Parliament buffeting one another over whether or not it should be implemented.
With the Minority against it, the Majority, on the other hand, are in full support and have approved the budget which includes the e-levy.
However, the implementation of the e-levy may not be possible until there is an approval by majority members of the Legislative House, hence deliberations are ongoing.
Contributing to Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo'' Thursday morning, Rev. Ntim Fordjour commended the government for introducing the e-levy which he believes will help with Ghana's infrastructure development.
He called on the Parliamentarians to assess this initiative devoid of partisan politics and also advised the citizenry not to see the e-levy as a burden but rather the avenue where the developmental projects they are looking for will come into being.
''If it were the PNC, NDC or CPP in government and introduced this e-levy of 1.75%, although I, Ntim Fordjour, am an NPP member but I would support. We have to lay aside partisan issues and, in the best interest of the country's development...'' embrace the e-levy, he said.
