The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rt Rev. Prof Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, has descended heavily on the necks of Ghanaians for kicking against the implementation of the e-levy bill.

According to him, Ghanaians are paying meager taxes in the country and that is the main reason why the nation is not going any tangible place. He said, Ghanaians are overly reacting towards the bill and it is high time they refrained from such attitudes and allow an easy flow access of the levy collection for the development of the country.

He further clarified a certain preamble, in the words case scenario of Europe where huge amount of taxes are collected from the citizens and based on that inscrutable measure, their nations are being developed to be admired by all in other countries including Ghana.

In his concluding remark, he assured Ghanaians to remain calm and see the outcomes of the levy they are going to be charged with for the growth of Ghana but if it is not used for the actual purpose on which it is intended to, then, the available option for the Ghanaian citizens, is to vote the current regime out of the political space for not accounting to the country faithfully.

But in a sharp rebuttal to what the leader of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has espoused, others are livid about his thoughts saying; he has just returned from Europe after cooling off his system.

The comments coming from the Moderator, is currently causing massive wrangling across the length and breadth of the country where some people are accusing him of thinking about himself only to the detriment of the ordinary members in his church.

The Presbyterian Church of Ghana, was in the news last week after it emerged that, it had built a first class mansion as a mission house at Osu in Accra for the Moderator and his entire family to stay in luxuriously during his tenure as the moderator of the church.

After the emergence of the splash edifice, many expressed disquiet and anger over the level of the stature of the building, stating that, it would be too dear, taking into consideration the level of hunger and poverty spreading widely in the country.
