President of IMANI Africa Franklin Cudjoe has taken a swipe at Akufo-Addo and M. Dr. Bawumia for their unwavering agenda to pay their wives with salaries, allowances and emoluments at the time Ghana has been hard-hit by Covid-19 and economic challenges.

Parliament has approved recommendations to pay First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Samira Bawumia equal at salaries of a cabinet minister.

This has received a backlash from ASEPA which says it will hurriedly go to the court to mount a legal challenge against the decision amid seeking of perpetual injunction to stop it.

With the approval by parliament, they will be receiving a near-twenty-one thousand Cedis monthly salaries from 2017.

Speaking in an interview monitored by African Editors on Wednesday 7 July 2021 in Accra, Franklin Cudjoe said “It’s only right that if you want to pay them, tell us their responsibilities. ”.

IMANI Boss noted “that the decision will cripple the public purse and put pressure on the national kitty”.Salary for Rebecca & Samira: Tell us their duties- IMANI Africa Boss tackles Akufo-Addo , Bawumia

Meanwhile, the Youth Wing of the opposition NDC youth says they will file a write at the Supreme Court to seek interpretation on the matter whilst embarking ‘no salary for presidential wives uprising’ in the country. According to national youth organiser of the party, they will invoke the jurisdiction of the apex court on the matter because the Ntiamoah Committee erred.

In a sharp rebuttal, Executive Director of CDD-Ghana Prof. H Kwesi Prempeh says executive and parliament cannot smuggle payments of salaries and allowances- emoluments for presidential wives/spouses in the name of Article 71 of the 1992 Constitution.

For his part, Private Legal Practitioner Edudzi Tameklo has urged President Akufo-Addo and his vice to amend the constitution to include the two wives as article 71 office holders if they want their wives to be paid.

It presupposes that the state will face multiple legal tussle from the NDC, ASEPA and South Dayi Member of Parliament Lawyer Rockson Nelson Dafeamakpor.

African Editors will update you on this pending matter.
