E-levy: Just Like Uganda, Ghanaians Will Only Stop Using MoMo for Few Months And Bounce Back – Ursula



The Minister for Communication and Digitalization, Ursula Owusu Ekuful, says the e-levy will not erode the gains made in digital transactions as some have suggested.

Speaking at the government’s first town hall meeting in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua on the controversial tax she disspelled suggestions that most Ghanaians will quite using mobile money when the bill is passed.

According to her evidence from other countries such as Uganda show that after only a few months of reduced digital financial transactions, mobile money transactions bounced back to become the leading means of transactions.

“When a similar levy was passed in Uganda, transaction values reduced slightly upon the introduction of this levy, but they picked up almost immediately,” she said, adding that she is confident that Ghana will do much better.
