Past Methodist Bishop for Obuasi Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu has lashed out at former President John Dramani Mahama for indicating that a National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will cancel the much-talked about Electronic Transactions Levy in 2025 if it comes to power.
The outspoken Bishop believes Mr Mahama would not even get the opportunity to come to power to cancel the policy.
The former Methodist Bishop of Obuasi further expressed disappointment in the three-time NDC flagbearer for making such an utterance, saying it is an attempt to sway voters.
He further reiterated that the predicaments the country finds itself in will take only prudent economic decisions to get out and that is what the e-levy is being taken from the citizenry to solve.
He believes strongly that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is on the right track to get nation from the wrecks and shocks of the Covid pandemic coupled with the Russia-Ukraine war.
“So, we should all endeavour to pay so the government could use the accrued money for development,” he advised.
He called for all and sundry to help push the government’s agenda to industrialize the country under the leadership of the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu made this known when speaking to journalists at the ongoing Methodist’s 25th Synod at Mount Zion Methodist Church, Obuasi.
