The member of Parliament for Effutu, Alexander Afenyo-Markin,has called on Ghanaians to demand for transparency and accountability of the proceeds from the Electronic Levy.
The Finance Minister should be summoned on quarterly basis to account and update Ghanaians he said.
Speaking at the homecoming ceremony organised by the Tertiary Student Confederacy chapter (TESCON) of the University of Education, Winneba, Mr. Afenyo-Markin indicated that achieving a transparent system of disbursement will prove to Ghanaians that the monies from the levy have been used for the purpose for which it was established.
“I am saying that we should call for a transparent system of disbursement and we should call on the finance minister and roads minister to be reporting to parliament at least every quarter so that if you are in your village paying momo tax, once you hear in Parliament that the road that was not accessible is going to be construted, at least you know the money is being put to good use.”
“I think that is the concern of many Ghanaians and that is where we should direct our energies,” Mr. Afenyo-Markin stressed.
