President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assented to the e-levy bill into law on Thursday, March 31, according to a new report filed by TV3’s Presidential Correspondent Nana Adua.

The policy which has faced vehement opposition for months was nevertheless passed on Tuesday, March 29 much to the chagrin of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) whose minority parliamentarians staged a walkout before it was passed in parliament.

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta revealed on Wednesday, March 30 that deductions will start in May this year.

He said that is the assurance he has been given by the Controller and Accountant General (CAGD) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), who will be the revenue collectors.
