She made this known after the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta announced that 1.7 percent has been added to mobile money transactions more than Ghc100.

Speaking in an interview on Accra-based GhOne TV on Thursday, November 18, 2021, she gave details as to why it’s time to tax Ghanaians.

She emphasized that anyone who sends money for more than Ghc100 to another person cannot be considered poor because the amount is large enough thence the person must be taxed.

In her words, “The state is saying that if you are sending up to a GH¢100 a day, cumulatively you can send up to GH¢3000 a month, that is all going to be tax-free. Now if you have more than a GH¢100 to send a day, then you’re not poor. So if you really are poor and you are in a position to send a GH¢100 a day, then we need to re-classify our definition of who the really the beneficiaries of these are,”
