“You Have Brains, Use Them” : Sam George Clashes With John Kumah Over E-Levy

Published

on

Ningo-Prampram MP Sam George has clashed with Deputy Finance Minister John Kumah over disagreements with the implementation of the E-LEVY.

The renewed online brawl comes on the back of the debate on whether E-LEVY affects the playing of tithes or not.

Sam Goerge had claimed that the E-LEVY was regressive if the paying of tithes was not expected from it. John Kumah has thought otherwise.

In a Twitter back and forth, Sam George criticized John Kumah by rubbishing the thought and preparation that went into the E-LEVY considering the fact that tithing would be affected.

He had written:

Dear @johnkumah_Esq, I have told you square pegs have no place in round holes. When we are talking IT deployment, kindly do us a favour and keep quiet. You make more sense that way. Cheers.

In a sharp rebuttal, John Kumah asked Sam George to indulge him in the intellectually-exclusive discussion thus he would not condone his excesses if he has failed to use his brain.

He had written:

@samgeorgegh you have brains use them. Whether E-levy affects tithe, or not is not an issue of IT deployment, it is common sense. I thought the IT community has cautioned you to tread cautiously when it comes to its operations and not to feign ignorance as you always do.

Also, John Kumah also encouraged Ghanaians to treat everything Sam Goerge said about the E-LEVY as propaganda and falsehood. According to him, the E-LEVY was not implemented to tax tithe etc…

They are taxed for using a platform, you can’t ignorantly say one is taxing tithe, offering and Zakat. Again, most Faith-Based Organizations make use of merchant momo numbers, which are exempted from the E-levy, which you know so why this hypocrisy from you.

When telcos charge people for using their medium to pay for offering, why don’t you say their actions are also affecting tithe, such unpatriotic comments. If you drive to Parliament and you buy fuel which is taxed does that mean we are taxing your work as a parliamentarian?

As a result, Sam Goerge did not allow the comment made by John Kumah to slide as he came back strongly to stress why he believed the E-LEVY would hamper economic growth if tithe was taxed.

He also clarified that he has brains and uses them unlike his opponent, John Kumah.

@johnkumah_Esq, I do have brains. I also do use it. You claimed in a very bellicose manner that tithes wouldn’t be affected by e-Levy & that I lied. Now the Chamber says you lied! Which IT community? The rented one which got exposed yesterday? Now please do you have a brain?

Consequently, John Kumah also came back to describe Sam George as an ‘unrepented liar.” According to him, Sam George has deliberately failed to admit that E-LEVY deductions do not affect the paying of tithe.

.@samgeorgegh you are a member of Perez Chapel, should you decide to pay your tithe you will use their momo number(ID 443765) which is a merchant number. So E-levy won’t apply. Yet again you have refused to use your brains and remain unrepented in your desire to always tell lies.

Sam George rebutted John Kumah’s claim by writing:

See why I say you are a square peg in a round hole? Does having a Merchant number exempt one from the e-Levy? No! And you are supposed to be the Deputy Minister of Finance? The Merchant must be tax compliant before an exemption applies. PCI is supposed to be tax-exempt. Learn!

Meanwhile, many Ghanaian have been ranting on social media following the implementation of the E-LEVY since May 1, 2022.

The letter read;

16 May 2022

RE: CHUCK’S CHEESE & FNAF

It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Published

on

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
