National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia is predicting a favourable outcome for its flagbearer, John Mahama in the December 7 polls.

This follows the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia‘s address on his vision for Ghana when elected as the next president.

To General Mosquito as he is popularly known, the address was a rally for the NDC and its candidate which makes their campaign activities easy.

“Bawumia’s address was a rally for Mahama because most of the things he said, especially the nuisance taxes, Mahama and the NDC had already announced plans to abolish them.

“So it will really make our work easy and soon, we will organise a major response to expose him well. We will continue to remind him [Bawumia] about our opposition to all the things he spoke about. He can’t deceive us but we thank him for doing us a favour,” he said in an interview on Accra-based Okay FM.

Dr. Bawumia pledged to among other things abolish the controversial electronic transaction levy, commonly referred to as the E-Levy, Emission Levy if elected into office.

The levy was implemented by the government as part of its strategy to broaden the tax base and generate revenue for development.

He emphasized the importance of transitioning Ghana into a cashless economy, not only to stimulate economic growth but also to combat corruption.
