The National General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr John Boadu says the proposed e-Levy is expected to transform the Ghanaian economy and in effect protect the vulnerable.
Addressing journalists in Tamale as part of his working visit to the Northern Region, Mr Boadu mentioned that the controversial levy is designed to protect the vulnerable in Ghanaian society.
He charged party and government communicator's to continue demystifying the e-levy policy to the citizenry at any given opportunity.
On covid-19, Mr. Boadu appealed to the Ghana Health Service to re-advertise locations where the vaccines are available.
