Addressing a capacity building workshop organised for the Majority Caucus in Parliament and some Ministers of State, on January 22, 2022, the Suame MP said:

“It is difficult for me when people are kicking against the e-levy when you know that we approved of it in the adoption of the motion to approve the budget.” As a result, the first step has already been completed.

“The e-levy has been accounted for in the various estimates that we have approved for all sectors.” The second thing we did was this. The third step was to incorporate everything into the Appropriation Bill and pass it unanimously.

“What does it mean that you approved the E-levy?”

“So when we do all three of these things and then turn around and say that you (Members of Parliament) are against the Bill, perhaps you didn’t know what you were doing,” he explained.
