I Never Said Business Owners Will Be Arrested For Rejecting MoMo Transfer – John Kumah

    Deputy Finance Minister, John Kumah, has dismissed reports that suggested that business owners who refuse to accept Mobile Money (MoMo) as a mode of payment over fears of E-levy should be arrested.

    In a post on his social media page, the minister urged the public to disregard such reports.

    According to him, the reports are propaganda tools deployed to create disaffection for the government and the electronic transfer levy (E-levy).

    “I never said Business owners who refuse to accept MOMO because of E-Levy will be arrested.

    “Kindly ignore some media publications that quote me as saying, “business owners who refuse to accept MOMO because of E-levy will be arrested”.

    “This information is false and misleading since I never uttered the words that are being attributed to me. This can only be the handiwork of people who are bent on creating public dissatisfaction toward [the] Government and the E-levy.

    “I entreat the media to always double-check and make sure they source their information from credible sources,” John Kumah posted on his Facebook page.
