MoMo agents threaten strike over e-levy

The Mobile Money Agents Association of Ghana (MMAG) has threatened to strike from Thursday, December 23, 2021 over the “regressive” e-levy.

According to the association, the 1.75% e-levy threatens the survival of their business for which reason they must register their displeasure.

In a statement issued on Sunday, December 19, 2021 and signed by the General Secretary, Evans Otumfuo, the group “…wishes to inform the 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%, we deem it necessary to embark on an Industrial action. As an Association that implements all Mobile Money policies through our operators, we see this levy as very regressive and critical to the survival of our businesses.”

“Consequently, as part of our demonstration on Thursday, December 23, 2021, our services as Mobile Money Agents will not be accessible across the country. All Agents will go on strike, hence all outlets will remain closed. If all efforts remain futile, an indefinite action would be taken thereafter.”
