I support NDC’s e-levy fight- A-Plus
Musician and firebrand Social Commentator Kwame Asare Obeng, known in private life as A-Plus has thrown his weight behind NDC in their anti-e-levy fight in parliament.
Speaking during an interview monitored by African Editors in Accra , A- Plus declared anti-E-levy campaign against the current Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led Administration.
“I want to support the NDC in their fight against E- levy. I want them to have a press conference, call all Ghanaians and tell them that if the E- levy is passed when we (NDC) come to power, we will cancel it. They should bring everybody together and make this statement”.
According to Kwame A-Plus, he is against the e-Levy just as much as every levy set up to milk the poor masses. He reasoned that such monies are being charged, yet are not used for their intended purpose.
“I am against E- levy. I’ve been against every levy. Because I think that they just come, find a very easy way to make money, and then that money is even not used for the intended purpose. It is being wasted,” he said
He also complained bitterly about the numerous tax deductions introduced in the system by the government. And yet the country is still the same.
“If roads would be built, Cookie, you and I have been in this country, whatever project. How many taxes haven’t been introduced to do what, and we are still the same? Ghana! You see that’s the problem we are facing now,” Kwame A Plus.
A-Plus who campaigned for President Akufo-Addo ahead of 2016 polls, has been critical of the NPP government on issues of national interest including corruption, misapplication public funds, excessive borrowing and others.
