Mr Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a senior partner at Africa Legal Associates is proposing a national debate on whether Ghana should go back to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) or rely on the proposed Electronic Transaction levy (E-levy).
In a tweet Thursday, Mr Otchere-Darko said the year “2022 began without the usual US$3billion injection of Eurobond cash.
He wrote that the government’s post-COVID recovery GhanaCARES programme is hinging partly on the E-levy, which Parliament may not approve.
On that note, he proposed a national debate on whether or not Ghana should go to the IMF or rely on the E-levy or take up both or none.
He concluded his tweet with, “Tough decisions confront Ghana.”
“There should be a national debate: do we want IMF or E-Levy or both or none? Tough decisions confront Ghana.”
