MTN Ghana customers will pay more for calls and data services starting on Saturday, May 1, 2021. MTN Ghana made the announcement in a tweet on Friday, April 30, 2021.
This, according to the firm, is to compensate for the 1% rise in the National Health Insurance Levy that occurred as a result of the government’s implementation of the COVID-19 health recovery levy.
“Scancom PLC (MTN Ghana) wishes to remind you that, as a result of the launch of the COVID-19 Health Recovery Levy, which has resulted in a 1% rise in the National Health Insurance Levy, talk time and data charges have been changed to accommodate the tax change,” MTN said in a statement.
“This will take place on May 1, 2021.”
