E-levy: Gov’t fails to meet revenue target

A leading member of the New Patriotic Party, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, has disclosed that the Electronic Transactions Levy (e-levy) has generated less than ¢60 million, close to two months of its implementation.

“What options are open to the government? The question should rather be: what option, if adopted, will re-inject investor confidence in our economy? Even if we find the $3-5 billion required, will that help? E-levy which was to have given us some 600m by now has done less than 60m,” he said in a tweet on Monday, June 27.

This particular tweet follows several others from him on whether the government should seek support from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) or not.

Although, Mr Otchere-Darko said he is not against a move to the IMF, he is opposed to them offering “peanuts” to the country which comes with harsh conditions.
