Ex-Prez Mahama Takes Equal Pay As Akufo-Addo; He Must Slash His Too – Wontumi



With salary as equal as what the sitting President is taking home monthly, one would want to know why Mr. John Mahama hasn’t been bold to come out and announce to Ghanaians his willingness to slash his salary by the same percentage President Akufo-Addo has publicly declared.

The Ashanti regional Chairman for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Chairman Wontumi is challenging Mr. Mahama to do as President Akufo-Addo has done by taking 30% off his salary if he really cares for Ghanaians.

In an interview with Wontumionline, Chairman Wontumi called out Mr. Mahama for being a “trickster” and crying wolf by pretending to care for Ghanaians at a time global economies are suffering.

“Former President John Mahama takes an equal pay as President Akufo-Addo despite being in opposition. The constitution mandates he is paid equally as a sitting President even though he is just home doing nothing meaningful for the country. He must be the first person to have slashed his monthly salary by 30% but he hasn’t coughed or spoken about it. This guy is a mess, Jesus Christ!” Chairman Wontumi said.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has slashed his salary by 30% with immediate effect due to current economic difficulties.

Speaking as the guest of honour at this year’s Eid Al Adha prayers in Accra, the President announced the cut to send a signal to citizens about the need to sacrifice as the country goes to the International Monetary Fund for support.

He also announced a 50% cut on fuel for government machinery.

According to the president, all ministers are not exempted from the  30% percent salary reduction.
