NDC’s Brogya Genfi and NPP’s Jennifer Queen clash over E-levy on live TV

The airwaves crackled with tension on the February 8, 2024 episode of UTV’s “Adekye Nsroma” as Ernest Yaw Brogya Genfi of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Jennifer Queen from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) locked horns in a fiery exchange over Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia’s recent promise to abolish taxes, including the contentious E-Levy.

The disagreement escalated quickly, with Brogya Genfi launching accusations at the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led administration, branding it as “wicked” for imposing burdensome taxes on Ghanaians. He suggested that Bawumia’s pledge to eliminate such levies implied an acknowledgment of the government’s failure to address the tax burden effectively.

However, Jennifer Queen vehemently contested Brogya Genfi’s assertions, accusing him of misrepresenting Bawumia’s statements and refuting claims that the Vice President had labeled President Akufo-Addo as “wicked” for implementing the E-Levy.

The exchange intensified as Brogya Genfi stood firm on his interpretation, quoting Bawumia’s words from a February 7 lecture where the Vice President purportedly indicated plans to abolish the E-Levy during his administration. Brogya Genfi inferred from the statement that Bawumia indirectly criticized President Akufo-Addo‘s administration for introducing the controversial levy.

In response, Jennifer Queen dismissed Brogya Genfi’s interpretation as “mischievous” and emphasized that Bawumia never directly accused his boss of being “wicked.” She reiterated Bawumia’s commitment to abolishing the E-Levy during his presidency without attributing blame to the current administration.

The verbal sparring continued with both sides staunchly defending their positions. Brogya Genfi insisted on his reading of Bawumia’s remarks, highlighting the discrepancy between the Vice President’s promise and the ongoing enforcement of the E-Levy under President Akufo-Addo’s tenure.

As tensions reached a crescendo, Queen and Genfi traded barbs, with each attempting to assert their narrative over the other. Despite attempts at moderation, the clash persisted until the end of the segment, leaving viewers with a stark portrayal of the political divide surrounding taxation policies in Ghana.
