The General Overseer of the Perez Chapel International, Rev Dr Charles Agyin-Asare commended President Akufo-Addo and the first lady, Rebecca for returning salaries paid to the latter by the state.
Speaking on the issues that give rise to military takeovers in the sub-region, at the annual security services day of national prayer at the Burma Camp, on Thursday October 21, Rev Agyin-Asare said the decision indicates that the President and his wife are gradually giving ear to the voice of Ghanaians.
“Our politicians, since last year seem to be slowly listening to the voice of the citizens. When a committee said the wife of a president and vice president should be paid, when we the citizens said we didn’t want it, the First and Second ladies reportedly returned what they had received.
“When they increased the salaries of the president and his ministers by over 50 per cent, when we said no, the president was said to have returned the difference of what was taken this year and to have put a freeze on that of his minsters and of state. It shows they are giving some ear to the voices of the people and that is a good thing.”
