There has been so much brouhaha over the salaries of spouses of Presidential and Vice Presidential title bearers. Ghanaians have bemoaned the lack of sympathy by law makers and the Executive on the ordinary Ghanaian who have been burdened with many taxes. Abronye has waded into the debate and has gone a step forward to the Supreme Court to challenge double salaries given to MPs.
On ‘Ekosii Sen’ today, Thursday, July 8, 2021, Abronye, the NPP Bono Region Chairman spoke to Osei Bonsu on his decision to challenge the payment of double salaries to some MPs. He wants the Supreme Court to declare that those payments fell below the constitution and the MPs made to pay all they have taken already. He has accused 10 MPs of taking double salaries between 2009 – 2016.
“I have all the evidence. They have even admitted to this. It goes against the 1992 Constitution. I have their bank accounts and evidence from the Controller and Accountant General. It says that no MPs should hold double offices once they come to office unless permitted by the Speaker of Parliament. I want the Supreme Court to declare that all the allowances they have taken are null and made to pay back everything” Abronye said.
Kwame Baffoe popularly called Abronye also has another suit against the Attorney General. He is fighting against the emoluments to be paid to the spouses of the President and Vice President of Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Samira Bawumia. The earlier suit under discussion is him against the Attorney General, NDC MPs and Controller and Accountant General. .
