The Association of Mobile Money Agents has threatened to embark on strike against the controversial e-levy starting from Thursday, December 23, 2021.
A statement from the Mobile Money Agents Association of Ghana (MMAAG) said, “The union wishes to inform the general public, customers and users of mobile money that as part of actions to register our total displeasure with the government’s proposed e-levy of 1.75 per cent, we deem it necessary to embark on an industrial action”.
The statement further said, all mobile money agent stores shall remain closed on Thursday in a bid to send a message to the government.
The E-levy was proposed in the 2022 budget by Finance Minister Ken Offori Atta.
The levy seeks to charge 1.75 per cent on all digital money transactions above 100 cedis.
