But the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) also insists that the 1.75% tax will overburden the already burdened Ghanaians. The minority have argued that the average Ghanaian is faced with massive hardship, as the NPP government has failed to rule the economy well.
Again, a section of the populace and experts have also greeted the yet-to-be approved levy with disapproval.
But at a town hall meeting held in Koforidua on Thursday, January 27, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta and other government officials explained that the e-levy is designed to allow for an improved standard of living.
The government officials at the town hall meeting also shared a document, that gave an idea how much Ghanaians will pay for a MoMo transaction if the e-levy is passed into law in its current state.

The government continued to explain that the implementation of the proposal will provide the government with revenue to undertake development in the country.
In a tweet on Thursday, President Akufo-Addo said through the levy, government will be able to mobilise revenue to improve the country’s road infrastructure while providing job opportunities for the teeming number of unemployed youth in the country.
