Vice President  Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has topped Twitter trends after the Minister of Finance presented the 2022 budget before Parliament on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

While some Social Media users on Twitter are questioning the introduction of E-levy, others have called out Dr. Bawumia on his comments against the taxation of Mobile Money after the minister announced a 1.75 percent tax on Mobile Money.

Dr. Bwumia in August 2020, is quoted to have said he doesn’t believe Mobile Money should be taxed, “I don’t think Mobile Money should be taxed because most of the people who use the service are poor people so if you put more taxes on it they will suffer,” he stated.

This statement was made in an exclusive interview with Kwame Sefa Kayi on Peace FM.

It is, therefore, the surprising government announced a 1.75 percent tax on Mobile Money in the 2022 budget read yesterday.

Some Ghanaians have taken Twitter to share their sentiment on the matter and the budget at large







Below are some of the tweets:

“I’m wondering if Dr Bawumia was aware of this move before he delivered his digitalization lecture. Because it seems to undercut his message somewhat. I’m afraid old boy may be becoming a scapegoat for this administration.” ReadJerome shared on Twitter.
