The failed presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress in the 2020 elections, John Dramani Mahama, according to sources close to him, appears to wallowing in fear over the 2022 budgetary statement.
The former president, obviously worried about the prospects of the E-levy, invited the leadership of the Minority caucus to his house where he expressed uneasiness about aspects of the budget which, he believes, could disrupt his chances of becoming president once again.
The Thursday meeting was particularly centered on the E-levy which, he mentioned, would be a game changer for the ruling party if it allowed to pass.
He, therefore, urged the caucus and leadership to do all within their abilities to kick against the levy which is believed would yield a substantial amount of money for the government to embark upon its activities.
Mr. Mahama, according to the information, pushed the group to reject the budget as anything less than that would not bode well for the NDC in the 2024 elections.
The Minority leadership assured him of their best efforts to oppose the budget, especially the E-levy, saying they are in agreement with him over the threat the levy poses to the party’s determination to come back to power in 2024.
It remains to be seen how the Minority MPs can achieve this evil-filled agenda of Mr. Mahama who is desperate to come back to power.
