Former President of the Republic, John Dramani Mahama has revealed that he’s ‘broke’ because the government has refused to pay his salaries since he was booted out of power.
He also disclosed that it’s the former first lady, Lordina Mahama who has been taking good care of him and keeping the home from the little earnings she makes from her businesses.
The spokeswoman of John Mahama, Joyce Mogtari Bawa in an interview on Okay FM’s “Ade Akye Abia” said;
“Maa Lordina is a very hard working woman; she is still running and managing her businesses and so I am sure that maybe she is the one taking care of our father [John Mahama] and by God’s grace everything is well but what government should give to them, none has been given”.
On the question of whether the former president borrows money from his wife, she answered;
“I can’t tell if he [Mahama] borrows money from her, but I know Maa Lordina is someone who helps her husband a lot.”
Mogtari Bawa reacting to a newspaper publication that the former president has been receiving monthly salaries from the government stated;
“Let me put it on record that up to date, everything the Edu-Buandoh Committee recommended which were largely adopted by the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana for implementation, all of the conditions under that particular document; the emolument documents, none of them have been met and none are being met”.
