Mr Richard Kwame Sefe, the Member of Parliament for Anlo constituency in the Volta Region has stated the confusion and fisticuff in the Parliament among members was in order to kick against the controversial e-levy.
According to him, they have fought a good fight to protect the already burdened Ghanaians from being overburdened with harsh taxes.
He stated that the e-levy the government is trying to bring will send many people to their early grave following the rising cases of suicides among Ghanaians who are fed up of living in a hopeless country with so many taxes.
"They promised not to tax Ghanaians, but what do we see now, taxes here and there and the load is just becoming too much for our beloved citizens to bear" he added.
He continued "if not that fight in Parliament, the cruel NPP government would have passed the e-levy taxes".
Mr Sefe said this during a town hall meeting at Keta-Abutiakope Word Power Ministries church on Friday January 21,2022.
The theme for the program was "Parliamentary Representation and Accountability: Upholding our Covenant with the People."
Mr Dzudzorli Kwame Gakpey, the Member of Parliament for Keta constituency, the host of the program in his turn asked the constituents to rally behind the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to come back to power in 2024 election.
"We will put Ghana back to work in the year 2024 after the general elections," he stated.
He added that Ghanaians who are suffering under the Nana Addo led NPP administration are yearning for NDC come back to deliver the country.
Mr Gakpey added that the NPP government has deceived Ghanaians resulting in total hardship.
According to him, the NPP promised to move the country's economy from taxation to production.
He noted that Ghanaians can now attest for themselves the lies and deceit of the NPP entangling Ghanaians in a web of many taxes since it took over power from the NDC.
He said for the past one year of being a member of Parliament, he assisted 850 youths to learn various types of trade to mitigate the level of hardship.
He continued that, through his initiative, he organized an eye screening exercise for about 750 people within his constituency.
Mr Gakpey urged Ghanaians to continue to endure the hardship awaiting the return of NDC to power in 2024.
Present at the ceremony were Mr Gabby Hottordze, MP for Central Tongu; Mr Peter Nortu-Kotoe, Akatsi North MP; chiefs, constituency executives among others.
