Following the successful passage of the contentious E-LEVY despite stiff opposition from Ghanaians, President Akufo-Addo has taken a subtle jab at Ghanaians.
President Akufo-Addo used the august platform of the State of the Nation Address on Thursday to make faces at the minority and to pull the legs of Ghanaians.
He did this to send a clear message to those who were vehemently opposed to the E-passage, LEVY’s the naysayers and his detractors.
While speaking about the number of roads his government has built so far, Akufo-Addo paused, opened his eyes wide, and gestured to the minority, mocking them about his success, which had obviously become their pain.
In a viral video, Akufo-Addo chose the parliament house to tease the opposition and Ghanaians who had opposed several policies he planned to pass or implement.
The E-LEVY, also known as the Electronic Transfer Levy or MoMo Tax, has enraged many Ghanaians, who believe the government is insensitive to the plights of ordinary citizens by taxing the use of electronic platforms for monetary transactions.
