Momo-refusing business owners will be arrested – Deputy Finance Minister

Hon. John Kumah, Deputy Minister of Finance, has cautioned business owners against rejecting MOMO as a payment option as a result of Ghana’s adoption of the E-Levy.

According to the minister, refusing to accept any form of online payment system is illegal.

This comes after public outcry that some businesses are refusing to accept momo payments for fear of being taxed when the money is withdrawn.

Adakabre Frimpong Manso, a radio show host, had a similar incident when the fuel station where he purchased petrol refused to accept MOMO as payment.

According to the host of the radio show, this occurred in Ejisu, where the Minister also happens to be the MP.

Reacting to the complaint, 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 via mobile money.
