Anyidoho Berates Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu Over E-Levy Birthday Cake

former NDC Deputy General Secretary

Samuel Koku Anyidoho, founder and CEO of the Atta-Mills Institute has chastised the Majority Leader in Parliament Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu for being “insensitive” by displaying an E-Levy cake at his 65th birthday celebration.

Speaking on Asaase Radio Thursday (17 February), Anyidoho said: “When in the midst of an E-Levy debate, the Majority Leader decides to have a birthday party with an E-Levy cake… you must be sensitive to the feelings of the people that’s all.”

“So, if somebody pulled a prank, you must stand on that platform and say ‘me, the Majority Leader with all the wahala that is going on in Parliament over E-Levy, I stand before everybody and say no this is a no no, leadership’.

“Once you can level up to the feelings of the people, you’ve got it. You can’t build Rome in a day, maybe you can’t even build Rome, but if the people see that there is some measured approach to leadership, they will even vote for you,” Anyidoho added.

He, however, wants the government to step up education on the controversial E-Levy in order to get a buy in from Ghanaians.

Meanwhile, Maxwell Ofosu Boakye, the special aide to the Majority Leader in Parliament, has explained that the E-Levy-designed cake was not the official birthday cake of Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
