Manasseh Azure Awuni has borrowed Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s famous ‘if the fundamentals are weak, the change rate will expose you’ cliche to mock the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo over the e-levy policy.

The multiple award-winning Ghanaian journalists took to social media to say when the fundamentals in the economy are weak, the desperation to accept E-levy becomes intense.

The contentious e-levy is the most topical issue in the mainstream and social media on the Ghananain landscape of the internet.

Meanwhile, the Executive Director of the Institute of Democratic Governance, Dr. Emmanuel Akwetey, has said President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as head of the executive needs to intervene in what seems to be a deadlock over the E-Levy policy.

He has implored the government to negotiate with the minority on the matter to make a headway.

Speaking in an interview with TV3’s Roland Walker, he said “If you look at other countries like the US, whenever Congress, House of Representatives and the senate get into a situation where they do not want to approve supplementary budget you will hear that they are going to shut down the government.

“In spite of the fact that it is an informal approach nobody sees what the conversation.

There are times that they announced they are going to see the president and the cameras are there, nobody knows what they talk about but they come back and announce that they are going to extend for three months.

“A this stage some engagements with the public is fine but I think the time is gone because they could have used the break.

The only way forward I believe, is the Head of State or the Head of government inviting them and prepare to say, what can I do for you to get this through?
