Paying E-levy Is Not Compulsory, If You Can't Pay, Then Stop Using Momo - Carlos Ahenkorah

Member of Parliament for Tema West, Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, has asked Ghanaians who do not want to pay the 1.75 e-levy to stop using Mobile Money (MoMo).

He said the propanganda against the e-levy for political expediency is nauseating.

He told TV3’s Komla Klutse in an interview in Parliament on Wednesday December 8 that “No human being or no person likes to pay tax but it is a known fact that taxes are generally appalled by people who are supposed to pay them.

“So, what is happening is quite understandable. But to the extent that it has been used to gain some political points or it is being done for political expediency, for me, is very unfortunate.

“I will tell you something, I have always been saying that the MoMo tax is not a compulsory tax, you only pay when you use it. If you don’t use it you don’t pay so for me, there is no way any other procedure for making payments is going to equal MoMo.

“Right now, what we are saying is the tax is targeted at those who have the ability to pay, not those who are receiving. If you are receiving it is okay to go and negotiate with the person who has gone to the bank to borrow money and be a MoMo agent, pay money out, otherwise keep the money on your phone and you don’t pay any money.

“It is money targeted at those who want to use the service, even if I stand here and tell people that if you like don’t pay or if you like don’t use MoMo, I tell you, using MoMo will be far cheaper. If you think using the MoMo service is difficult or expensive, you try taking your money out there and even see.”

Kwame A Plus Blames President Akufo-Addo's 'Under Performance' Partly On His Age

Controversial Political activist and businessman, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly called Kwame A-Plus has rated the performance of the president as poor claiming his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively, giving him 20%.

Berla Mundi shared a tweet of what A-Plus supposedly said on TV3’s NewDay about the president’s performance in the last 5yrs saying his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively.

According to the post, Kwame A-Plus gave the president’s performance  20% and he thinks he’s overwhelmed, and his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively which has turned him into a pastor now as he’s more lenient than he used to be.

E-levy Saga: If You Send MoMo More Than GHS 100, You're Not Poor - Ursula Owusu

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister of Communications and Digitization, believes Ghana cannot keep begging or borrowing to finance its growth.

As a result, she claims the only way to increase income is to collect the 1.75 percent E-tax on financial transactions.

She said the E-levy would offer Ghana the much-needed resources to carry out its various developmental initiatives during a government town hall gathering in Koforidua, Eastern Region.

The cash must be created domestically or we must borrow, and we cannot continue to borrow to support our progress.

“To achieve Ghana beyond assistance, we must all support the e-levy and contribute to national development,” she stated.

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful cautioned that continuing to borrow from donors might rob Ghana of its independence and autonomy.

“Donors will control our growth speed as long as we are reliant on them,” she envisaged.
