Ghanaians clash with Mahama on Facebook for rejecting salary payment to First and Second Ladies

"Any attempt to broaden the scope and for that matter turn the spouses of the President and VP into permanent office holders, in addition to the support provided to their officers, would appear unreasonable", John Dramani Mahama boldly declared through a press release, sighted by TV3. 

Conclusively, Mahama is telling Ghanaians that times are dire; hence, vehemently rejecting salary to the spouses of Presidents and Vice-Presidents of Ghana.

It appears he has toed a very laudable, in the minds of many concerned citizens, however, there may be a hidden intention.

His stance seems to be hanging somewhere in the sky because minority leaders in parliament are in strong support of President Akufo-Addo's decision.

If his fellow National Democratic Congress (NDC) members are strongly behind the Government, what else can he do, even if he disagrees with them?

Possibly, he is hypothetical exempting himself from the blame Ghanaians may pour on him, and utilze that opportunity to win a political point.

But as to whether Ghanaians will give in to what he is intending to achieve in the long-run or not, time will surely tell.

Meanwhile, some Ghanaians have clashed with him on Facebook after Roland Walker shared a story concerning this subject matter (Presidential Spousal Emoluments).

Below are some of their reactions:
