Kwamena Duncan, former Central Regional Minister, says Ex-President John Dramani Mahama’s revelation that he only recieves monthly pension is an absolute falsehood.
In an interview on TV3 on Monday, September 12, John Mahama stated that he has been taking care of his own expenses including those covered under his emoluments as an ex-Head of State.
“I receive only my monthly pension, like President Kufuor or President Rawlings was receiving until he died. That is all I get.
“I pay the electricity bill for my house, for my office. I pay the water bill for my house and my office. I live in my own accommodation so the state does not pay me anything for accommodation.
“They haven’t given me an office, I rent an office in East Cantonments, I pay the rent myself, I pay for my own fuel, the state doesn’t give me fuel. I pay my own domestic staff, I pay my own medical bills. I pay for my own air tickets when I travel,” he said on TV3.
But Kwamena Duncan says the former President is lying because he has been receiving other benefits aside his monthly pension from the State.
He disclosed on Peace FM’s Wednesday edition of “Kokrokoo” that the Statesman has received cars comprising a brand new Mercedes Benz registered this year, two Land Cruisers and other vehicles as well as his travel costs covered by State.
“The man tells us that apart from his pension, in fact, he bears the cost of travels and all of those when it is a palpable lie; absolute falsehood! . . . If he tells you that except my monthly pension, nothing else is done for me, what does that mean? It means that for vehicles, I’m not getting vehicles. If it were travels, I’m not being supported in my travels. It it were this, even payment, except monthly salary or monthly pension. This is pure deception,” he said.
To him, John Mahama has become desperate for power but cautioned Ghanaians stating “if there was anybody that this country had to be firm and build a solid Chinese wall between power and that individual is President Mahama. He must not have the least chance to corridor of power”.
“He is become so desperate that there is a certain four-year term hanging there, I need to have it just for the sake of it that I have become President again . . . Ask yourself, what is President Mahama capable of doing? What can he do to change our fate?”, he admonished the citizenry.
