Exclude Ernestina Naadu Mills And Matilda Amissah From It; They Are Exceptional: Netizen Warns.

Recently, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah announced that Parliament had approved a recommendation from the Ntiamoah-​Baidu led committee that suggested that government formalize or institutionalized the payment of salaries to spouses of Presidents and Vice Presidents. This new development attracted the displeasure of Ghanaians and as such, led to the call from Ghanaians to the First and Second Lady to reject the salaries. Heeding to the cry of Ghanaians, the First Lady, Rebecca Akuffo Addo took a bold step to reject this salary. That one aside, she promised to pay back a whooping sum of GH¢870k which is the sum of allowances she took from 2017. The Second Lady, Samira Bawumia followed the exact trail of the First Lady and did same.

Based on this, Ghanaians, particularly members and executives of the New Patriotic Party are mounting pressure on Former First Lady, Lordina Mahama to also refund all the allowances she was paid from 2008 to 2016, an accumulation of GH¢3.2m allowance. This has become a new trend online and Ghanaians have expressed their support in this trend. A netizen explained that he is also in full support of this trend. However, he warned Ghanaians not to mount that same pressure on Former Spouse of Late Presidents. To be precise, the Netizen mentioned Matilda Amissah Arthur and Ernestina Naadu Mills, wives of Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah Arthur and John Evans Atta Mills respectively. He stated that these people are widows and as such, must be treated with the respect they deserve. The netizen recommended that the government must continue to pay them allowances.See post.
