Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a Member of Parliament for North Tongu, believes the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) should not impose the Electronic Transactions Levy on Ghanaians (E-levy).
Instead of organizing multiple town hall meetings to persuade Ghanaians to accept the levy, he believes the government should enlist the help of the party’s Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi.
Chairman Wontumi must be engaged, Mr. Ablakwa joked in a tweet, because he has $3.1 billion available for the acquisition of Chelsea Football Club.
The money, according to the North Tongu MP, should be used to develop Ghana’s economy.
“Why go to all that trouble arguing with Ghanaians at arduous town hall meetings to accept the arrogant $1 billion E-Levy when Wontumi can easily save Ghana before saving Chelsea?” he wondered.
This comes after news that Chairman Wontumi has made a $3.1 billion bid to buy the Football Club.
Read his tweet below:
It seems we should urge Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to contact Chairman Wontumi for a bailout
Why go through all that stress pleading with Ghanaians at tortuous town halls to accept the obnoxious $1bn worth E-Levy when Wontumi can easily rescue Ghana before saving Chelsea?😂
