Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, in August last year, postulated that Mobile Money (MoMo) should not be taxed.

Speaking in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on PeaceFM, the vice president said, “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.”
