Popular gospel musician and evangelist, Diana Asamoah has thrown her support for the controversial e-levy proposed by the Akufo Addo government.
Many Ghanaians and some pressure groups have resisted the implementation of the e-levy after Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta first mentioned it at the floor of parliament when he read the 2022 budget.
Speaking on YouTube based talk show “Zionfelix Uncut” with host Zion Felix, Friday, December 24, Ms. Asamoah said taxes play an integral role in the development of countries.
“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 on your going and same on your coming. Everything is taxed,” she said.
Evangelist Diana Asamoah said Ghanaians ought to travel in order to be exposed to how the system operates elsewhere.
“In Ghana, it is because some people have not travelled 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.
