My Wife Calls Mr E-levy Now- Top NPP MP Reveals

Honourable Afenyo-Markin has stated that his wife now calls him Mr E-levy.

The Member of Parliament for Effutu Constituency made it known in an interview on Joy News, while expressing delight in the passage of the E-levy.

He revealed that his wife has generated a new name for him and she now calls him ‘Mr E-levy’.

The politician lauded the benefits of the E-passing levy’s on Joy News’ Newsfile show, while joking that his wife teases him about it.

“I am the chair of the road fund, and I am well aware that the building sub-sector of the economy is a major area in which, if properly addressed, we can contribute to the growth of our own economy.”

“Because you have a builder who receives a contract, completes a job…takes a bank loan, and he doesn’t get paid for a year, two years, three years, and now has to rely on Goro boys.”

“The funds that come, sometimes you don’t know who to pay. You have huge IPCs. But with the arrangement that is being put in place would ensure certainty that the funds are in, and the banks will be happy to finance the contractors because they have a long value chain.

“When you give a job to a contractor, he’s employing an artisan, an unskilled labourer, the waakye seller gets a job, the carpenter will get a job and if the job is for 18 months, the whole lot of value chain will get an opportunity.

“Yes, it is not palatable to be talking about tax. You know..my wife calls me…she says ‘Mr. E-levy’. She’s been teasing me,” Afenyo-Markin said while laughing.
