Presidential Spousal Salary Is A Criminal Enterprise- Gallant Cadres Of NDC Fires Gov’t;
The NPP is working to get Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia’s wives paid salaries from the consolidated fund. This move is contemptuous and disrespectful to the people of Ghana.
The NPP side of the 7th Parliament though used their numbers to pass the spousal salaries during the 7th Parliament, meaning Past Parliament and not the current 8th Parliament approved it.
Remember the NDC had only 106 MPs then. The NDC side raised it and vehemently objected to, especially the constitutionality aspect of it but unfortunately Parliament under Rt. Hon Mike Ocquaye approved it before MPs rose for the elections in 2020.
Ghanaian lawyers must not look on for this crass illegality to fester before we start crying wolf. Rebecca Akufo-Addo will be paid Gh¢21,000 per month, and she will receive a back dated salary from 2017 which will amount to GH ¢1,134,0000 as back pay.
Interestingly, this amount exclude her allowances which total GH ¢ 87,000 per month. This too will be backdated to 2017 and it will give Rebecca Akufo-Addo GH ¢6,345,000 cedis.
Bawumia ‘Wives would receive the same amount. Ghana is dead.
Prof. Ntiamoah Emoluments Committee recommended that, the spouses of both the President and his vice be paid salaries from the consolidated fund. Even though, no document have been sighted nor read the report. Gallant Cadres of NDC think this is nasty, contemptuous disdainful to the sensibilities of Ghanaians.
It’s an insult to the intelligence and integrity of the people who pay taxes to the government . How is this conceivable at all, but for the disrespect Nana Akufo- Addo and his people have against Ghanaians?
That, because Nana Akufo-Addo and bawumia have been elected as President and Vice, their wives should also be paid salaries with the tax payers money. Incredible foolishness! Were these elements also voted for?
If we begin to demand that, Civil Servants’ wives be paid half the salary of their husbands, what will government of Ghana say?
Ghanaians can anticipate them saying, “no money”. Yes no money because, your useless Free SHS is suffocating for lack of sponsorship, Workers’ Salaries are in arrears, and School Feeding is in coma and yet government want to use Ghanaian money to pay the wives of President monthly salaries? Eeii Nana Akufo-Addo! That Ntiamoah guy kuraa, where did he come from?
Assuming without admitting that, the deal is done, how would Bawumia’s wives be paid? Will the two share the salary of one, or each will take her separate salary. Erh, and you think Akuffo Addo will agree?
Knowing how much the NPP like equalization game, I believe Nana Akufo-Addo would have become a polygamist overnight and get collect double spousal salary. “You think he fool erh”?
But on a more serious note, this is unthinkable, to say the least! Aaba! What crime have Ghanaians committed kuraa?
Nana Akufo- Addo and his government have sold lands , gold concessions, bought mansions abroad, educated their children abroad to avoid the ill-grounded useless Free SHS system they have created, flew in a bath-fitted private jet and now, spousal salary for President and vice. Bumbo Klaat!
