Another NPP Big Wig Appeals To Alban Bagbin Over Salaries To Spouses Of Presidents

Social media is still awash with various comments regarding whether the spouses of the Presidents and Vice presidents should be paid. Many have said that the spouses are already being catered for and so there is no basis for the salaries. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah however argues that Parliament has approved this already.

Kwame Baffoe, popularly called Abronye has filed a writ at the Supreme Court to contest this. Two NDC MPs have also filed at the Supreme Court for clarification on this. many feel the payment of salaries to the spouses do not fall under Article 71 Holders.

On ‘Top Story’ tonight, Friday, July 9, 2021 on Joy FM, Evans Mensah interviewed Charles Wereko Brobbey who is an NPP. According to Wereko Brobbey, it is up to Parliament to determine if indeed they had approved this before anyone could challenge this. he said that he had petitioned the Speaker, Alban Bagbin for clarification before he takes the next step.

“I haven’t heard anything clearly on the what Parliament did with the committee’s work. Parliament must speak on this matter. We want clarity and confirmation from Parliament. A minister of government saying it doesn’t mean anything

Once we get the clarification, presumably, then Parliament will tell us why and whether it falls under the constitution of Ghana. My own position is that there is no basis for the payment but before you challenge it you need to know what Parliament said about it” Wereko Brobbey said.

The debate still rages on especially in a time when Ghanaians have been plagued with a plethora of taxes.
