The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications has stated that subscribers of mobile money services who abandoned the facility due to the Electronic Transfer Levy (e-Levy) are gradually reverting to it.

According to the CEO of the Chamber, Dr. Kenneth Ashigbey, patronage of the service is gingerly increasing after the initial dip.

He made this known on Thursday, May 12, 2022, during the Super Morning Show.

“We are beginning to see a lot more of the normal practice,” he said.

His comment comes eleven days after the implementation of the Electronic transfer Levy (e-levy). Following its implementation, the Ghana Revenue Authority in collaboration with the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications and other stakeholders has heightened sensitisation on the e-levy in order to assuage the fears of the public and restore their confidence in the usage of the electronic wallets.

The implementation of the e-levy was initially greeted with displeasure from the public domain with panic withdrawals hitting various mobile money vending stations due to the fact that a lot of people were withdrawing from the service.

Giving an update on this development, CEO of the Chamber stated that “the lows that we got, which could have been attributed to the fact that e-levy has started, and the challenges that we had, most of them have been resolved.”
