“You gave Ghanaians two options: E-Levy or IMF. Having opted for the IMF, any honest government will scrap the unconstitutional and repugnant E-Levy immediately,” Mr Ablakwa tweeted on Friday July 1 after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo instructed his Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to commence formal engagements with the IMF inviting the Fund to support an economic programme put together by the Government of Ghana.
