Reggae Musician and Radio Presenter, Abubakar Ahmed, popularly known as Blakk Rasta has stated that the electronic Levy is a cheap way of enslaving Ghanaians.
Blakk Rasta speaking on GTV Breakfast Show stated that, the government should find inventive ways to tax individuals rather than imposing the levy.
“It is a terrible act, E-Levy is a cheap way of enslaving Ghanaians. We already have taxes, and find other creative ways of taxing people” he said.
The Musician is also not happy that road tolls were scrapped.
“All of a sudden road tolls are gone, because everyone uses mobile phones right now, you see the people providing us services are charging us, and you (government) come providing us with no service at all, you want to charge me on top”.
Blakk Rasta further indicated that the E-levy has other intentions. ”For me it is not a good thing”
He added that he does not get tired of criticizing politicians and if he does his sons will not forgive him”.
“Eii no, get tired ? My sons will beat me up in the next 40, 50 years, they will call me weakling, they will call me father who was a sell-out”.
