According to the Government, the Electronic Transaction Levy will help the Government raise the needed revenue to meet the infrastructural demands of the country.

The P.R.O of the Mobile Money Agents Association of Ghana (MMAAG), Charles Kwesi Addo, has called on the government to provide better conditions of service for its members.

During an interview with Dwaso Nsem on Adom FM, Mr Addo, lamented the poor service rendered to the members, hence the need to better it.

“There has been an increment in everything if you look at the indicators we use in our operations, but still, the Government of the day is thinking about itself on how to mobilise revenue,” he stated.

According to him, the association is not against the e-levy bill but rather government should put in place measures that will make them secure.

Additionally, implementing the measure without the inputs of its members will burden consumers and cripple its business operations.

He added; “We (MMAAG) are not against the passage of the e-levy, we are in agreement with it but every blessed day agents are killed and others robbed, what is the Government doing about it?”

“There has been nothing to solve those issues,” he opined.

Mr. Addo further noted that there hasn’t been any increment in the profit they earn since the inception of the mobile money service.

 “We made them aware that since the introduction of mobile money electronic transfer for over 12 years now, there has been no increment in terms of commitment,” he noted.

“The 0.5 percent that was issued in 2009 and served as the profit of the agents has been in existence till now without any increment,” he added.
