Ghanaians will push you severely if you divert E-Levy funds- Group to gov’t

The Coalition for Accountable E-levy Fund (CAEF), a public policy advocacy group
has asked the government to account to Ghanaians the revenue generated since the implementation of the levy started.

The group says in the spirit of transparency and accountability, the government must disclose the amount generated from the electronic transfer levy (E-Levy), after 51 days of its implementation.

The group said the Ghana Revenue Authority had already told Ghanaians that they are able to generate one million cedis barely 24 hours after the implementation of the E-Levy in May this year.

Appearing on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, convener, Kwame Baa Mensa, indicated that it would be prudent for Ghanaians to know how much has been generated so far..

He also expqluned that the regulation backing the implementation of the E-Levy, it must be clear, unambiguous and precise, the usage of its accrued funds.

He revealed several Ghanaians who they have spoken to are not sure the government would use the money for the intended purpose hence the need for some level of transparency and accountability.

He stated that the revenue generated from the levy should not be diverted.

For him, the levy could send the government to the opposition hence the need for them to be accountable to the people.

It will be a cardinal sin and the New Partiotic Party (NPP) government shall be punished by Ghanaians come 2024 if they fail to use the proceeds from the e-levy for it’s intended purposes.

“It is the high expectation of Ghanaians, especially the huge number of unemployed youth, that the government never disappoints them, and chanel the E-Levy funds to the promises made before its implementations.”
