It is now emerging that former President John Mahama took home the “fattest” ex-gratia of GHC 14 million in 2013, Chairman Abronye has revealed.
The Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) disclosed on the Nsempa Fie show on Wontumi TV that since the 4th republic, former President John Mahama remains the only person who has taken home the whopping amount and set a record for himself.
He therefore stated that it was hypocritical for him to turnaround and claim if he is given the mandate again he would cancel ex-gratia payments.
“The ex-gratia payment was put in a bucket of a kia track and sent to him”, he said.
Former President John Mahama has promised that the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will champion a review of the 1992 constitution to tackle issues such as ex-gratia payments and reformation of the Judiciary.
The 2020 NDC flagbearer believes the incumbent Akufo-Addo-led government has derailed democratic gains made in Ghana.
