Not long ago, protestors calling themselves the Coalition of Concerned Ghanaians poured onto the streets of Accra to express their opposition to the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy), which is before Parliament for consideration.
Dubbed: ‘Yentua’, a Twi word meaning ‘We won’t pay’, the demonstration. The protesters walked through the Kwame Nkrumah Avenue to Tudu and Kinbu and further through the National Theatre and Ridge Roundabout and ended at Parliament House, where they presented a petition to the leadership, led by the Majority Chief Whip, Mr Frank Annoh-Dompreh, and the Minority Leader, Mr Haruna Iddrisu.
After a series of demonstrations by sad and patriotic Ghanaians, the incumbent NPP government has manoeuvred their ways to pass the infamous E-levy to become a law in the county which will begin full operation in the month of May 2022.
Following the writing of a sign in her hands, an anonymous woman has gone viral as a result of her involvement in the approaching E-levy operation.
“E-levy stars next month. Withdraw all your money from your MoMo account. E-levy; yentua”, the inscription reads.
