Of course until one gets to know the unimaginable salaries that some single individuals accumulate monthly, one would have always thought that the president, who is the first gentleman of the land is the highest earner of salary. According to this article, some can even earn something not less than two times the president's salary per month. But as to whether they work to deserve these whooping salaries from the Ghanaian tax payer, the readers are the best judges.
One thing I liked about the Mahama administration is the scrapping of all those previleges these same people use to enjoy, unlike Akuffo Addo nothing is being done about reducing some of these previleges at least to save money for the generations yet unborn. It is not acceptable for the Ghanaian worker for no equal returns. No wander some civil servants can not hold than to always go on strike. Today, you will hear that teachers are on strike leaving the Ghanaian student helpless, Tommorow you will see that Doctors are not also satisfied with their conditions of service and so are laying down their toils at the risk of the dieing patient. What at all is happening in Ghana?
If we can not pay our nurses and doctors to their satisfaction, what risk are we taking? Maybe a "death risk". It is only in Ghana that. some people will packed with money while others are denied and let to their own faith.
See the numbers graduates our educational institutions produce and yet they can not get a job to survive. Imagine the long queue of young and skilled entrepreneurs that can not get startups to launch their businesses to expand the economy yet others receive incalculable salaries every month. If I continue to lament on this particular issue, you(the reader) may end up developing hatred for government officials. So without much ado these are the people that earn more than the president;
