I Have The Right To Disagree With You – Kwesi Pratt Tells Randy Abbey In The Face

Kwesi Pratt and Eugene Antwi, MP for Subin joined Randy Abbey on ‘Good Morning Ghana’ today, Wednesday, July 7, 2021. One of the intriguing questions they discussed was on the increase in payments of some senior officials of government. Kwesi Pratt argued that the increases in salaries of judges and president and citizens are too wide. He wondered why citizens get a smaller increase in percentage in minimum wage as compared to the top hierarchy of government.

Kwesi Pratt also disagreed with the new allowances to be given to the spouses of the First and Second Gentlemen of the country. According to him these were not necessary because they don’t render any services. Randy Abbey maintained that he had no issues with the paying of wives of the President and Vice, he was of the view that the monies were huge. This was contrary to Mr. Pratts’s argument that this was not right especially if the persons have multiple wives.

“I have the right to disagree with you. What are they doing that deserves allowances? How did this get to Parliament and we never heard of this? When it comes to things like this they become one and approve because they will all enjoy. This shows that Parliament does not always represent the people” Kwesi Pratt said 

As Kwesi rightly puts it the opposition know they will also enjoy from this one day so readily approve it. it is important to know that no wrangling was heard when this came to parliament for approval unlike other issues. But the question remains, should the spouses of the President and Vice receive allowances?
