E-Levy: Hundreds Join NDC’s Demonstration Against E-Levy


The Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has hit the streets of Accra to protest the passage of the Electronic Transactions Levy (E-levy) being pushed for by government.

The opposition party members are also registering their displeasure against the government’s inability to resolve the ongoing University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) strike action that has lasted for about a month. The aggrieved Ghanaians converged at the Obra Spot on Thursday morning clad in red and black outfits.

Protesters have started massing up at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange for the street march against the Electronic Transfer Levy Bill.

The demonstrators are holding placards with inscriptions such as; “E-levy is a no brainer to economic recovery and we insist that Yentua!” and “Pay UTAG. Students are suffering!”

The “Yentua” demonstrators will march from their point of convergence through the Kwame Nkrumah Avenue, Farisco, Striking Force, the Kinbu Road, the Octagon, the National Theatre through the AU Roundabout.

The demonstration is intended to end at the Parliament House.

The Police Service has already indicated that it will afford the necessary security detail to prevent any mishap.

The Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) will deploy personnel to assist with traffic management.
