The Association of Mobile Money Agents has disclosed that they have called off their intended strike slated for Thursday, December 23.

 

Speaking  to the  General Secretary of the Association, Evans Otumfo, this is due to a fruitful meeting they had with the Ministry of Communications and the National Communications Authority.

 

He also said , it also said their planned petition to Parliament has been called off because the house is on recess.

 

“We are by this communique, calling on on all members to hold on from going on strike/demonstration as intended to take place on 23rd of December 2021. We know that our members are very resolute and poised to get on the streets to fight in protection of their business but we cannot do away with the fact that we are Ghanaians and must be concerned about how we intend to make this strike/demonstration happen,” the association said in a statement.

A statement signed by the association’s General Secretary, Evans Otumfuo noted that, “The Union wishes to inform the public, customers, and users of mobile money that as part of actions to register our total displeasure with the government’s proposed e-levy of 1.75%, we deem it necessary to embark on an Industrial action. As an Association that implements all Mobile Money policies through our operators, we see this levy as very regressive and critical to the survival of our businesses.”
