Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, believes Ghana cannot keep begging or borrowing to finance its growth.

As a result, she claims the only way to increase income is to collect the 1.75 percent E-tax on financial transactions.

She said the E-levy would offer Ghana the much-needed resources to carry out its various developmental initiatives during a government town hall gathering in Koforidua, Eastern Region.

The cash must be created domestically or we must borrow, and we cannot continue to borrow to support our progress.

“To achieve Ghana beyond assistance, we must all support the e-levy and contribute to national development,” she stated.

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful cautioned that continuing to borrow from donors might rob Ghana of its independence and autonomy.

“Donors will control our growth speed as long as we are reliant on them,” she envisaged.
