Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has confirmed that President Akufo Addo’s wife is earning GHC 33,000 as a monthly salary and on the same level as a Cabinet Minister, even though the constitution does not recognise her as a beneficiary of Article 71 emolument structure.


Essentially, when the Yaa Ntiamoah-Baidu Committee set up by President Akufo Addo on June 18, 2021, recommended that Rebecca Akuffo Addo and the Second Lady Samira Bawumia be put on a formal salary scale like other political appointees, the opposition party-dominated Parliament in connivance with the Akufo Addo administration simply rubber-stamped the recommendation that has sparked massive public outrage.


In respect of the Vice President, it recommended that his wife should be paid a salary equivalent to a Cabinet Minister non-MP (about GHC 32,000 monthly) as currently pertains, with her husband in office.
