1% E-Levy: Ras Mubarak ‘shoots’ down Haruna Iddrisu; describes his posture as flip-flopping betrayal

Former Member of Parliament for Kubungu Ras Mubarak says the Minority Leader in Parliament is part of the reasons why Ghanaians equate the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).


According to him, Haruna Iddrisu’s flip-flopping is getting worrying and the earlier it is addressed the better for the political party he represents.

Ras Mubarak made this observation after the Minority Leader was a record to have said that he now understands the e-levy after the Finance Minister explained it to him and that the Minority is ready to accept it if the government will listen and reduce it to 1%.

The former Kubungu Member of Parliament believes that his current position on the bill is a betrayal of the peoples’ cause.

He contends that the Auditor General’s report indicates that over 12billion cedis disappeared into thin air due to procurement irregularities and no one has been held responsible therefore approving the e-levy will mean urging the people in government to take more from the people they govern; something he sees as not in the interest of the people.

He’s completely lost the plot. It is no longer the views of experts like Kwame Pianim, Terkper, Ato Forson, Nii Moi Thompson, & others that matter but that of the Finance Minister who’s run the economy to the ground. What a joke. What have they done with taxes collected already?

In case the Minority Leader hasn’t been reading the Auditor General’s report, over 12billion cedis disappeared into thin air due to procurement irregularities and no one has been held responsible. There’s wanton dissipation of public funds and you want them to take more from the people albeit 1% and waste it as we’ve seen in 5years? This is nothing short of a betrayal of the people’s cause.

It’s the sort of shifty attitude and dangerous flip flopping that make the public feel NDC and NPP are the same.
