Ex-gratia Amounts Received By Article 71 Office Holders (2017-2021)

Amidst Ghana Pre-tertiary Teachers industrial action for Cost Of Living Allowance and the inevitable journey of Ghana to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the amount of Ex-gratia recieved by Article 71 holders from 2017 to 2021 has been made available.

Economic Fighters League has released data on how much each Article 71 office holder received as ex gratia for 2017-2021 term. They believe there should be a constitutional amendment on ex- gratias.

Ex gratia

Perhaps one of the most derided concepts in our political landscape is ex gratia payments, seen as part of the end-of-service benefits for a certain defined class of public servants.

Particularly at the beginning of a new Parliament when these payments are made to all MPs from the previous Parliament, whether or not they have been returned to the House after the election, the nation rises in collective angst and breathes fire through its nose at the payment of such mouth-watering figures.

The data shows the ex- gratia amount, number of officials holding that office and the total cost for the ex-gratia. (2017 to 2021)

The President of Ghana recieves the highest amount. He gets 659,392 cedis as ex-gratia for one term (A period of 4 years).

In summary a total of Two hundred and seven million, eight hundred and forty-five thousand one hundred twenty cedis (GHC 207,845,120.) was spent as ex-gratia between the said period.
