The Mobile Money Agents Association of Ghana have indicated they will meet with the president, Nana Akufo-Addo, in May over the controversial Electronic Transfer levy (E-Levy).
According to the President of the Association, Dela Dunstan Abotsi, the meeting with the president will address some of their concerns with regards to E-Levy, which is set to take off on May 1.
“The president has given us an invitation to come for a meeting next month, hence our hands are tied on making any move until we meet with him. We wouldn’t want to do anything that we will be sorry for later. Imagine taking a decision and after meeting with the president, everything goes well.” Citineswroom.com quoted
