"E-Levy Is Not Bad, Ghanaians Are Kicking Against Bcos They Don’t Benefit From Paying Taxes" - Sark
Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has finally shared his two cents about the introduction of tax on electronic transactions (E-levy) in the country. The award-winning rapper was forced to give his opinion on the matter after a Twitter user by the name @TsaatseB asked that he did so. “@sarkodie Please I want to know what you think about the E-Levy, you have been quiet on it your paddies are speaking their minds ooo,” the Twitter user inquired.
Sarkodie responded to the tweet stating that he understands the importance of paying taxes outside of Ghana since he enjoys avenues it has created.
However, he believes although citizens pay taxes in Ghana, they do not enjoy the amenities these taxes are meant to bring, hence the reason why he believes Ghanaians are complaining about the introduction of the e-levy.
“I pay a lot of taxes outside and I don’t complain because I’m using avenues they made available to make money ( it’s only right ) it’s not same here and that’s why we complain not because the “E Levy” is bad . When you broke, a harmless “good morning “ can sound like a tease,” Sarkodie responded to the tweet. See tweet below;
