First and Second Ladies Salaries: Direct your anger at Parliament – Koko Anyidoho

The Chief Executive Officer of the Atta-Mills Institute, Mr Samuel Koku Anyidoho has asked Ghanaians to direct the anger poured on the First and Second Ladies of Ghana over the approved salaries for presidential spouses to Parliament.

That he said was because, the salaries, information gathered from a Member of Parliament on a media station has revealed the salaries were approved by the MPs without thorough scrutiny to ascertain the details of what they were approving.

In a twitter post sighted by, he said same development was also responsible for the rising judgment debts in the country hence the country’s anger must be directed to them.

“If Ghanaians are angry at the attempt to pay salaries to 1st & 2nd Ladies, the anger should be directed at neither Parliament since we are now being told by MPs that, they did not see nor read the Report before approving it. The judgments debts also arise b’cos of same lack of reading,” his twitter post reads.

Mr Anyidoho’s comment comes a day after the First and Second ladies of Ghana, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Mrs Samira Bawumia rejected salaries approved for spouses of Ghana’s Presidents following a public outcry.
