The former Dayi MP made this statement on 'THE BIG ISSUE' on CITI television yesterday, 10th July 2021, when he spoke against the payment of allowances to the spouses of the president and the Vice-president.
According to him, he even thinks the president shouldn't take a salary. He asked that what does the president pays for? Everything about the president and his household is catered for by the state. He, however, agrees that the president should retire on his salary.
"I believe that today if President Akufo Addo wants to eat 'kenkey' and sardine, he won't buy it. If there is none at home, a telephone call will be made, and it will be provided. His welfare is taken care of, his family and household is taken care of so, what is it that he wants to burden the state with salary at the level of cabinet ministers?"
He added that everybody is saying that it is illegal for the spouses of the president and the Vice-president to paid, and his biggest worry is that the committee recognizes this and yet went ahead to recommend it.
