Ghanaian Gospel singer, Diana Asamoah has averred that those kicking against introduction of the E-Levy by the Finance Minister have not traveled outside the country before.
Speaking to blogger, Zion Felix in an interview, Diana Asamoah, a sympathizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), defended government’s decision to impose Electronic level and momo tax on Ghanaians saying that taxes play a pivotal role in a nation’s development.
“If you go to Italy, the toll is automated. You will not see anyone there collecting tolls but you are compelled to pay. You pay 10 Euro on your going and the same on your return. Everything is taxed”, she said.
According to her, Ghanaians ought to travel in order to be exposed to how the system operates elsewhere.
“In Ghana, it is because some people have not traveled before that is why they speak like that [against paying taxes]. If we were to explain the objective and the need to pay the E-Levy, it would bring massive developments. Ghana would have been so beautiful,” she added.
