Ghana’s Supreme Court found unanimously that the E-Levy will create “greater hardship” for the country’s citizens, headed by Justice Nene Amegatcher.

Approval of the application would result in increased hardship for the general public, according to a majority opinion of the court.

The respondent’s burden outweighs that of the plaintiff, the court concluded.

According to Edudzie Tamakloe, an attorney for the plaintiffs, Ghanaians may suffer irreparable harm if the practice is not halted.

According to him, even though the data was updated on March 31, only 136 people were present when the E-Levy was granted.
