The host of “Egya so Gyaso” show on Okay FM, Afia Pokua popularly known as Vim Lady says the disagrees with the assertion by the Communications Minister, Honorable Ursula Owusu, that anyone who is able to send one hundred cedis (100) via mobile money everyday is rich.

Afia Pokua made this revelation yesterday, November 22, 2021, during the show with some other panelists.

She said it is wrong for the Minister to suggest that people are rich based on the fact that they are able to send at least one hundred (100) cedis everyday.

Honorable Ursula Owusu was speaking on the imposition of a 1.75% e-levy on all electronic transactions including mobile money as indicated by the Finance Ministry in the 2022 budget and suggested that, anyone who is able to send one hundred (100) everyday through mobile money is rich but not poor.

” I completely disagree with Honorable Ursula Owusu’s assertion that as long as someone can send one hundred (100) Ghana cedis, than that person is rich. People borrow monies from banks to transact businesses and so if a market woman has borrowed money and transferring same to supplies, it does not mean that person is rich. People are really suffering and hungry too” she reiterated.

Afia Pokua further indicated that, the fact that people are seeing doing businesses and transferring monies does not mean they are rich but most of them work with loans .
