E-Levy: A Poor Ghanaian is Someone Who Earns GHS70 A Year – Minister



The Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has maintained that poor Ghanaians will be isolated from paying the controversial Electronic Transactions Levy (E-Levy) when it is finally passed into law.

The Minister who was speaking at a townhall meeting held in Sekondi on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, noted that the government has ensured that the levy will not affect poor people who send GHC100 or less within a day.

He emphasized that a poor Ghanaian according to research is someone whose annual income is not more than GHC70 adding that such persons fall within the E-Levy exemptions category.


“Poor people won’t pay some, there is no poor person that will pay some. This the analysis I made, in Ghana if they say someone is a poor person; it is someone who earns 70 Ghana cedis in a year.”
“But with the e-levy, if you transfer an amount of 100 Ghana cedis you won’t pay any levy on it. So let’s take it as if you’re a government worker earning like 1,500 cedis and you’re able to send over 100 cedis a day, then you have to pay,” the minister stated.
