Dr. Dickson Adomako Kissi, a Member of Parliament for Anyaa-Sowutuom, is pleading with Ghanaians to support the government to implement the controversial e-levy policy.
The e-levy has become a bone of contention among the Members of Parliament (MPs) and the citizenry as the country is tossed between whether or not to approve it.
With a section of the MPs in full support of this initiative, the other half is vehemently opposed to its implementation.
To the opposition, this e-levy will compound the hardships of Ghanaians.
But speaking on Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo'', Dr. Dickson Adomako Kissi sides with the Majority in Parliament who are yearning to pass the E-levy Bill which will subject Ghanaians to deductions on all their electronic transactions.
According to Dr. Dickson Adomako Kissi, the e-levy is a test to the world that Ghanaians are indeed ready for development, therefore urging the citizens to embrace it.
He explained that in a case where Ghana may go for a loan for development, the joy in paying the e-levy will serve as evidence to the lenders and investors that the nation is truly serious to be developed.
''In the future, should we go for a loan for our development, they will ask whether the citizens are ready for development and I plead with Ghanaians that this contribution to our development will ensure that if someone is coming to give us a loan, the person will say 'yes, the country has accepted they want development'. This is the truest test that Ghanaians are ready for development because we have all accepted to support with our quota . . . For me, looking into the future, this is a statement that Ghanaians are making to our President and those abroad that we are ready for development'," he advised the citizenry.
