A Letter To John Mahama: Your Wife Lordina Still Gets Paid By The State; Stop Making Promises You Cannot Keep – P.K Sarpong

Dear Mr. Mahama!

Your words live in one world whilst you dwell in a completely different one. Very much often, the very things you speak against happen to be the same things you practice.

In your desperation to win political power as we head into the December elections, you have been on a promising spree, promises you don’t even understand how they work or if they can be fulfilled.

Honing in on your latest promise of scrapping fuel allowances, DSTV, utilities for government officials, etc if your comeback attempts yield fruits, I have a few questions to ask you.

Which government officials is paid DSTV allowance? People pay for the DSTV they use in their homes themselves, not government. Or you mean the ones used at work? Then you might as well suggest that in the unlikely event that you become president again, all the television sets at offices would be thrown away.

You don’t seem to know what fuel allowances or coupons are meant for. They enable these officials to move to and fro. Unless you consolidate these allowances in their salaries, they cannot work. Consolidating them into salaries also defeats the policy proposal.

As for utilities, even as we speak, the state pays for you. If you indeed mean what you have said, pay your utilities yourself and refund those paid for you in the past by the state.

If the ultimate goal is to cut down on government’s spending, kindly stop taking monthly salaries from the state. Ask your aides, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, Stan Dogbe and the others get paid every month for churning out propaganda on social and mainstream media, to stop taking their salaries. The state pays them on your behalf.

Sir, your wife, Lordina Mahama, is paid every month by the state for being your wife. Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Samira Bawumia, the First and Second Ladies of the Republic, have since stopped receiving allowances from the state, let your wife follow suit and return all that have been paid to her over the years as her compatriots have done already.

You cannot preach cuts in government expenditure if you are elected president when your wife is paid for doing nothing apart from just being your wife. You are a walking hypocrisy! We take your promise with a pinch of salt.
