The Mobile Money Agents Association of Ghana (MMAAG) has threatened to embark on a demonstration to register their displeasure over Government’s proposed e-levy of 1.75%.
This will be followed by a nationwide strike if Government does not hear their cry.
According to the agents, they see the 1.75% levy as very regressive and critical to the survival of our businesses.
“The Union wishes to inform the General 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,” MMAAG stated.

MMAAG stated that all Agents will go on strike hence all outlets will remain closed.
