It is unreasonable to be contemplating E-levy on the masses – Professor Azar

Ghanaian public spirited lagal education reforms activist and private legal practitioner, prof. Stephen Kwaku Azar has lambasted the Nana Akufo Addo, Dr. Bawumia government for contemplating an E-levy on Ghanaians while practicing extravagance.

According to him there is much opulence in the Ghanaian public service sector enjoyed by only a few, that if reduced will build a country easy for the poor to survive. Prof. Azar was triggered to taking on the government due to the allocation of Toyota Land Cruiser and one Saloon car to each seven (7) Supreme Court Judges appointed between December 2019 and May 2020.

The professor was also quick to added that he is not only picking on the Judges, but how much can be saved to other areas. “The point here is not to pick on them. After all, they are not the only public servants entitled to this tax-free largesse.

The point today is to ask how much can be saved and diverted to other areas if rather than allocating these TLCs, we allocated the equally reliable and luxurious but less expensive Toyota Highlanders”, he said.

He stressed that it is unreasonable to tell Ghanaians there is no money in the public purse and still be allocating Toyota Land Cruisers. Stay the E-Levy and stop dispensing Toyota Land Cruisers. “ It is unreasonable to be contemplating E-levy on the masses at the same time that we are allocating TLCs to the bosses. Stay the E-Levy and Stop dispensing the TLC, he concluded on a social media post.

It is reported that “all the 7 Supreme Court Judges appointed between December 2019 and May 2020 were allocated one Toyota Land Cruiser (TLC) and one Saloon car each as Duty Post vehicles.”

The point here is not to pick on them. After all, they are not the only public servants entitled to this tax-free largesse.

The point today is to ask how much can be saved and diverted to other areas if rather than allocating these TLCs, we allocated the equally reliable and luxurious but less expensive Toyota Highlanders.

It is unreasonable to be contemplating E-levy on the masses at the same time that we are allocating TLCs to the bosses.

Stay the E-Levy and Stop dispensing the TLC.

#SALL is the cardinal sin of the 8th Parliament.
