I’ll cancel payment of ex-gratia if I become President again – Mahama promises

Ex-President John Dramani Mahama has pledged to revoke ex-gratia payouts to members of the executive if he is elected president of Ghana once more. He is running to be the NDC’s flagbearer in the 2024 elections.

He stated this, among other things, on Thursday, February 2, at the beginning of the start of his flagbearership campaign with the slogan “Building The Ghana We Want Together” in Ho, the city of the Volta Region.

“The payment of ex-gratia to members of the executive under article 71 will be scrapped,” Mahama said.

Mahama attacked the current Akufo-Addo-led New Patriotic Party administration while speaking to party members and fans, saying they arrived promising to improve Ghana but wound up wrecking its economy.

We won’t run a government of slogans; instead, we’ll run a government of action, the speaker bemoaned, adding that “our current condition and its impact on our people worry me very much.”

The former President claims that given the direction the NPP administration has taken Ghana’s economy, only someone with his level of experience can rescue it from its present predicament.

“Ghana does not currently require a ‘try-me-too’ leader. According to Mahama, Ghana requires a leader who takes ownership of the situation and tries to find solutions rather than one who assigns blame to others.

He wants to take charge of the largest resistance group and unseat the NPP government in 2024. Other candidates, including former Kumasi Mayor Kojo Bonsu and former Finance Minister Dr. Kwabena Dufour, are challenging him for the nomination.
