SHOCKING: Salaries Of Akufo Addo’s Staffers Increases From ¢136. 2M To ¢823. 8M


In One Year NDC Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has shockingly revealed that in a period of one year, salaries of people working at the Jubilee House under His Excellency Nana Akufo Addo has increased from GHS136. 2million to a whopping sum of GHS823. 8million.

Explaining further in a facebook post made by the Member of Parliament, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa exposed the fact that certain post such as the Ghanaian Presidency’ s Church Relations Manager and the Diaspora Church Mobilization Officer among others have all been created at the Presidency.

In difficult times when Ghanaians are suffering, salaries paid to Presidential Staffers keeps increasing at a speedy rate for reasons beyond human understanding.

Amidst several demonstrations for Ghanaians workers demanding increased salary with the President claiming there is no money in the system, it is however significant to observe from the 2021 Budget Statement the year most of these amorphous positions were created at the Office of Government Machinery that their Wages and Salaries shot up astronomically to GHS823. 8million from just GHS136. 2million in 2020 (an increment by a staggering 508. 4%). Interestingly an entire Parliamentary Service (including non parliamentarians) spent only GHS201. 1million which was budgeted in 2021 from GHS140. 4million in 2020 (representing an increase of 43. 2%).

Placed in perspective, the OGM salary increase by an additional GHS687. 6million in one year (508. 4%) is more than the GHS672million needed to pay NABCo workers for an entire year (see page 241 of 2021 Budget). Sadly, NABCo workers remain unpaid for 7 months.

Hon. SamuelOkudzeto Ablakwa is still in a daze as to what services are rendered at the Presidency and the number of employees there that salaries keep escalating over the  skies. What surprises him most is that the salaries. received by them is almost 4 times what Parliament spends in a year.
