Here is the exact salary of Akufo-Addo and each of his 110 ministers and it is crazy

Akufo-Addo's appointees will be agents of corruption - Prophet Kobi




President Nana Akufo-Addo's appointment of 110 ministers to oversee the affairs of state has provoked a firestorm of controversy and outrage in a section of the public.

Several Ghanaians have taken to social condemn what they say is an attempt to waste pubic funds by the president.

They include Dzifa Bampoe, a news anchor with Accra-based Joy FM, who launched a blistering criticism of the president over the appointments

Some Ghanaians have indicated that it will cost GHC20 million a year to pay the salaries of all the 110 ministers and deputy ministers.

This does not include the two vehicles (a 4x4 and one saloon car) that each minister will get and other perks that come with their job.

Here is exactly how much Akufo-Addo and his ministers will get paid.

President - GH¢ 22,809

Vice President – GH¢ 20,529

Chief Justice – GH¢17,107

Speaker of Parliament – GH¢ 17,791

Cabinet Minister (MP) – GH¢16,423

Cabinet Minster (Non MP) – GH¢ 16,195

Minister of State (MP) – GH¢ 15,967

Minister of State (Non MP) – GH¢ 15,739

Regional Minister (MP) – GH¢ 15,967

Regional Minister (Non-MP) – GH¢15,511

Deputy Minster (MP) – GH¢ 14,826

Deputy Regional Minister (MP) – GH¢14,598

Deputy Minister (Non-MP) – GH¢ 14,369

Dep. Regional Minster (Non-MP) – GH¢ 14,142

Chairman, Council of State – GH¢ 14,826

Member, Council of State – GH¢ 13,685

Meanwhile, Nana Akomea, the communications director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has defended the appointments.

He said the sheer scale of Akufo-Addo's vision for Ghana demanded that those 110 appointments be made.

"The vision of one factory per district, comprehensive free SHS, comprehensive irrigation in the north, one million extra dollars per constituency, special prosecutor, etc, offers the country the real chance to industrialize, provide jobs to the teeming youth on a sustainable basis, move agriculture from peasant levels to real agric business, stabilise the cedi on a sustainable basis, aggressively meet the basic developmental needs of our deprived communities, tame inflation, tame corruption, and generally move this country onto the cherished new paradigm of progress and development.

"President Akufo-Addo believes he needs these numbers of appointees to deliver," he wrote.
