Telecommunication giant, MTN, has declared that effective February 1, 2021, all mobile money transactions on its platform will be carried out with valid identification cards.
It says merchants are to demand the ID cards for all transactions at MoMo agent points.
The valid IDs to be accepted for these new developments are Ghana card, Driving License, Passport, Voter’s ID, Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) ID, and the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) card.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanaweb.com.
Explaining how the ID will be used, MTN explained: “when an agent is performing a cash-out for a subscriber, the agent is required to select the ID type and enter the ID number of the ID card the subscriber provides.”
This means that without the card, one would not be able to complete the process to either cash-out or deposit money.
Meanwhile, in other news away from business, popular actress, Nana Ama McBrown, has revealed that she had to drink her daughter, Baby Maxin's urine, in order to save her life.
She explained the myth behind doing so and said this happened in Canada not long after she had given birth to the daughter.
McBrown also revealed her fears about divorce, and confessed that looking at how the marriages of some celebrities crashed, she fears she might end up that way.
She revealed, however, that she is ready to divorce her husband if she offends her in one way; adding that he is also free to leave her should she behave likewise.
