Revoke All Allowances For Gov't Appointees- Efo Worlanyo Tsekpo To Ken Ofori-Atta

The Bono Regional Youth Organizer, Efo Worlanyo Tsekpo has stated that more than ever, he had a bit of hope for this press engagement by finance minister Ken Ofori-Atta. He said that more than ever, this is the most disappointing press engagement Ghanaians have experienced in the past 2 decades.

He said after all the hardship Ghanaians are going through, the finance minister and his uncle (Akufo-Addo) decided to use a significant part of our little funds, in fact our widows mite, to organise a "hollow" press engagement (to be more charitable to a sitting government).

"It is not surprising that the good people of Ghana, after the presentation, have shown extreme resentment and frustration towards such insensitive statements.

It is heart-wrenching for the finance minister to say that they have sacrificed just 30 percent of their salaries for nine months" Efo Worlanyo Tsekpo stated.

He added that "To set the ball rolling, let me serve as a reminder to the good and discerning people of Ghana. Do you recall or better still, do you know that the allowances of every government appointee are 30 to 60 percent of their gross salary? To be emphatic, the allowances of a political appointee under this government is more than five times their gross salaries".

He expressed that if truly, government want to show leadership; a sense of care, love, charity and affection to his´fellow citizens´ in this avoidable crisis they led us into. He said they should sustain their salaries and repeal all their allowances for the rest of the of their term in office. According to Efo Worlanyo Tsekpo doing this, will give Ghana more money than the sadistic e-levy they are seeking.

"If this government decide to forgo their allowances and cut the budget of the presidency by half, we will be out of this economic mess and we will disregard the soon-to-be-born creature call E-levy" he concluded.
