Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, the editor in chief of the new crusading guide daily, has endorsed the idea of providing salaries to the president's and vice president's spouses.
Kweku Baako indicated clearly that he supports the payment of the president's spouses and vice presidents in an interview with Metro Tv's "Good Morning Ghana" show.
According to Kweku Baako, the payment of the president's spouses is nothing new, and Ghanaians should stop acting as if it happened yesterday.
He explained that the government only wants to make it official in order to demonstrate the Akufo-Addo administration's transparency.
He did, however, reveal that there would come a day when a president is legally married to two or more wives, and in that case, the president would be forced to choose only one wife to earn the pay.
"In reality, I support the payment of the president's and vice president's spouses; I have no problem with it; Ghanaians should stop acting as if this happened yesterday; we've been giving the president's and vice president's spouses allowances; they just want to make it official," kweku Baako stated.
Is it true that if we pay Presidents' spouses, they will be covered under Article 71? The wages and allowances of the Executive, Legislature, and Judiciary are determined according to Article 71 (1) and (2) of the 1992 Constitution. What category does the first lady fall into?
Article 71 subjects all employees to criticism and the threat of dismissal if they do something wrong. Is it possible to fire the president's wife for doing anything wrong?
Why should we pay them wages if that is not the case?
