Charges To Be Paid For MOMO When E-Levy Is Finally Implemented (Reactions From People)

The Parliament of Ghana is set to discuss the acceptance or rejection of the Electronic Transaction Levy bill popularly called E-Levy in their next sitting.

Although the bill has not been passed, but the probability of passing the bill seems high because the majority group in parliament are in support of it.

As a background to the above OMGVoice, a popular social media website has shared an image from GTV with the charges to be paid for MOMO transactions. Check it below;

According to the image, a transaction of GH₵150 cedis will attract an amount of GH₵4.13 cedis instead of the usual GH₵1.50.

Also a transaction of GH₵ 1,000 cedis which now attracts GH₵10 will be GH₵ 27.50 cedis when the E-Levy is passed.

It should be noted that the levy will be applied to every transaction above GHS 100 on a daily basis.

Social Media has reacted to this. Check some of the comments below.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has indicated that the implementation of the controversial 1.75% levy on all electronic transactions will provide more jobs and opportunities for the youth of Ghana.

In a post on his Twitter page on Wednesday, January 26th 2022 he said: "The e-levy will provide the government with revenue to build more roads, provide more jobs and opportunities for the youth and reduce our dependence on debt."

Are you in support of E-Levy to be passed?
