The Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said the passage of three revenue bills that are currently before Parliament is crucial to help put Ghana’s economy back on track.
The three revenue bills are the Income Tax (Amendment) Bill, the Excise Duty and Excise Tax Stamp (Amendment) Bill, and the Growth and Sustainability Levy Bill.
“We need to rally together, find a common ground and pass these bills,” Nkrumah said on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (29 March). “This is not one of those incidents that we get into the chamber and there are blows like the chaos that ensued some months ago.”
“We need to complete these bills so that the relative stability you are seeing on the cedi can be cemented and then we can move forward to the broader economic recovery agenda,” he told sit-in host Benjamin Offei-Addo.
“If we keep ourselves here, and we don’t cement the relative stability on the cedi, our ability to move to the broader economic recovery will be hampered,” Nkrumah added.
