Lawmaker for South Dayi, Rockson Dafeamekpor has described the Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as a heartless person.
His comment comes after the Finance minister on Wednesday November 17, 2021 announced that government will be imposing 1.75% taxes on mobile money transactions.
Describing the tax as ‘the Bawumia tax’, Mr Dafeamekpor said the poor will be gravely affected.
“The Npp is saying poor people only do momo transactions up to Ghc100. A poor kid in Kpeve receiving & paying school fees of Ghc950 will pay the Bawumia tax. If I send Ghc300 to my Branch Chairman at Dzemeni to buy drugs, he’ll pay the Bawumia tax. Dr Bawumia is truly heartless,” he tweeted.
