President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has, in a tweet, said infrastructure development is a priority for his government.

This, he said, is seen in 3,016 housing units under the Kpone Affordable Housing Programme, 19km of drains completed with 1,000km of drains excavated, rechanneled and maintained across the country.

All these projects show that the taxes being contributed by Ghanaians are working, he said.

“Infrastructure development is a priority for the Government with 3,016 housing units under the Kpone Affordable Housing Programme, 19km of drains completed with 1,000km of drains excavated, rechanneled and maintained across the country. #YourTaxesAtWork #BuildingGhanaTogether,” Mr Akufo-Addo said.

Meanwhile, the E-levy policy is starting today Sunday May 1.

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) said it has held several technical sessions with charging entities for the e-levy in order to ensure a successful implementation of the policy.

The authority assured the general public that adequate measures have been put in place to make the implementation smooth.

A statement issued on Saturday April 30 said “The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) wishes to inform the public that the implementation of the Electronic Transfer Levy Act (Act1075) will commence on Sunday May 1.

“The GRA has held several technical sessions and engagements with the charging entities on the implementation of the e-levy with the aim of ensuring that the charging entities are in a position to implement the levy by the due date.

“The authority assures the general public that adequate measures have been put in place to ensure the smooth implementation of the levy. We encourage the general public to contact the authority.”
