E-levy will be a problem if the lives of Ghanaians are not improved as promised- Prince David Osei

Ghanaian actor, Prince David Osei has expressed his concerns about the implementation of tax on mobile electronic transactions (e-levy) and if the government will put the monies into good use.

The actor, who is also a staunch supporter of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) expressed that although a large section of Ghanaians are kicking against e-levy, he thinks the government’s goal to direct the monies towards nation-building is a good thing.

Speaking in an interview with Ameyaw TV on the red carpet of the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) Prince stated that he was hoping the collection of said taxes will be used in improving the lives of Ghanaians.

“All I’m saying is, whatever tariffs, whatever monies they’re taking, I just pray we put it in better use. Let us see the effect on the lives of the people, let’s see the effect in our economy, its not about taking all the monies and at the end of the day the standard of living is still the same,” he stated.

He also explained that the whole global economy is in crisis, and so “if we are asking people to  pay more, we need to see improvements in their lives.”

When asked if he has the confidence in the government to put the monies into good use, he said;
“If we don’t see a rapid improvement in the standard of living, we don’t see a good economy, we don’t see the Cedi stabilised against other currencies, and we don’t have a higher GDP, then, it’s going to be a problem.”
