Don’t tax MoMo; E-levy is regressive and punitive; it’s alien to Ghana’s dev’t – Ato Forson

A Former Deputy Minister of Finance, Cassiel Ato Forson , has said the E-levy should not be passed.

“Don’t tax MoMo,” the Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam lawmaker said on the floor of the House after the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta presented a statement on the E-levy.

He added “the NDC is opposed the E-levy, It is not only regressive but punitive.”

The Finance Minister on Tuesday March 29 moved the motion for the passage of the E-levy in Parliament.

“I therefore move the motion” for the passage of the E-levy, he said.

Obuasi West MP Kwaku Kwarteng seconded the motion.

However the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu rose and said they could not deliberate on it because they did have access to the the report.

Ruling on the matter, the Speaker Alban Bagbin said “The copies are being distributed now, I don’t think it is proper for us to suspend sitting, I will give you time to read the report to make meaningful contribution.”
