He said the government must find different ways of raising revenue to develop the country.

For instance, ‘Mr Music Man’ wants the government to tax foreigners who are doing businesses in Ghana and making huge profits but are not paying taxes.

“We pay a lot of taxes. I think the government must find ways of taxing a whole lot of different things. Do you know how many Togolese who are here working on buildings? … you know we love building houses…we now have Nigerians here doing designs on buildings [but] we don’t tax them…”

He said, “E-Levy is a bit of a big blow to some of us. I say so because I have been following the debate that is going on and I think at this time with what we’ve gone through as a people with COVID … and right after that E-Levy? I think the time is not right.”
