Business Owners Who Refuse To Accept MoMo Because Of E-Levy Will Be Arrested-Deputy Finance Minister Warns
The Deputy Minister of Finance Hon. John Kumah has warned business owners against the rejection of MoMo as a payment option because of E-levy in Ghana.
According to him, rejecting any form of online payment system is a criminal offense. This follows a complaint by the public that some businesses are refusing momo payment over fears of getting taxed when withdrawing the money.
Radio show host, Adakabre Frimpong Manso who had a similar experience complained when the fuel station he purchased fuel from refused to accept momo as payment.
According to the radio show host, this happened in Ejisu where the Minister happens to ve the MP for the area.
Reacting to the complaint in an interview with the radio show host, the Deputy Finance Minister warned these businesses that the earlier they accept to live by the E-levy, the better because it’s criminal to refuse to sell a product or service to someone just because the person wants to pay through momo.
