Despite concerns from some Ghanaians that the economy is in trouble, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, the Director of Communications for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), believes differently.

Despite the fact that the country is fighting a global pandemic – the coronavirus – he believes the local economy is strong.

The NPP’s director of communications, speaking during a news conference in Accra on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, said the government is putting measures in place to consolidate the country’s growth trajectory.

As a result, the government intends to introduce the E-Levy in order to create income internally and strengthen the economy.

Some Ghanaians have suggested going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for financial aid, according to Yaw Buaben Asamoa.

“Our economy is in good shape, thanks to solid pre-pandemic and post-pandemic results…

That intrinsic soundness was essential in our ability to maintain focus and avoid negative growth during the year. COVID was really high, but we were able to maintain 0.4 percent (economic growth),” he explained.

“Our strategy is to consolidate the growth process from inside, while adhering to all IMF structures… i.e. attempting to increase revenues internally.” “With the E-Levy, we’re attempting to do that,” he added.

Meanwhile, through town hall meetings, the government has been teaching Ghanaians on the importance of accepting the E-Levy in order to earn income for the country.
