A delegation of Ministers have been on the road engaging with Ghanaians to courts support for government’s Electronic Transactions Levy (E-levy).
The community outreach programme designed to take inputs from Ghanaians on the levy was first held in Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital of the country.
The engagements are designed to explain the importance of the levy as a source of revenue for national development.
In February however, the engagements took the delegation to Tamale and Wa, both in the northern part of the country.
Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah as part of his message during the engagements recounted the robustness of the Ghanaian economy prior to the influx of the COVID-19 pandemic and how the deadly virus has eroded the gains we made as a country.
He said though the pandemic has caused lots of harm and economic hardships, all is not lost as government is proactively putting measures in place to bring the economy back on track.
This he said what is left is for Ghanaians to support government in bringing the economy back to life through the levy.
Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta also called on Ghanaians to contribute their quotas towards national development.
