Parliament has approved the controversial E-levy during its sitting on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
The minority side walked out of the house after the Bill was adopted at a reduced rate of 1.5% from the initial 1.75%.
The 1.5% E-Levy will be charged on mobile money and most electronic transactions.
Despite its passage, the new levy is unpopular among Ghanaians.
‘Gravely ill Chieftaincy minister and Ahanta West MP Alexander Kojo-Kum [was] ferried to parliament in an ambulance to assist in passing of E-Levy’, report said.
Jamaludeen Abdullah, Minister of Youth and Sports also suffered cuts from a sharp object when E-levy debate on the floor of parliament on Monday, December 20, 2021 ended in exchange of blows.
