GHANAIAN PRESIDENT SLASH HIS SALARY BY 10 PERCENT
It was in November 201 that the Ghanaian finance minister Mr. Seth Terkper told the Ghanaian parliament that president Mahama and his political appointees have volunteered to cut their salaries by 10 percent for the purpose of building community based health and planning systems [CHIPS].
Interestingly, the salary cut took effect from January 2014 and this month the finance minister has announced that the exercise had yielded 327,363.69 as at the end of last month. Though the report did not disclose the total earnings of the president and his appointees during the period cited. Notwithstanding, I think the president should be commended for this.
Can our president or legislators do such thing?
