One issue that has attracted the attention of many Ghanaians this week is the payment of salaries to the spouses of the President and the Vice President. A lot of concerns have been raised by Ghanaians in relation to this matter with many demanding for the section of the Constitution that made such provisions hence describing the step as unconstitutional and must be withdrawn.
There have been various lawsuits seeking to reverse this decision to pay the First Lady and Second Lady. The former President, John Dramani Mahama has also expressed his opinion on the matter. The former president said he disagrees with the payment of salaries to the aforementioned persons.
