Joyce Bawa Mogtari who is a special aide to former President John Mahama, has reacted to the approval of salaries for first and second ladies by the Parliament of Ghana.

Joyce Bawa Mogtari further added that the wives of the President and the vice President cannot be paid under Articles 71 and 108.

She however advised the Government to introduce a new bill in Parliament through which the first and second ladies can be paid. In a tweet, Joyce Bawa said;

“The list of Article 71 office holders is exhaustive. If they want to pay the spouses of the President and Vice President, it is very obvious that cannot be done under Articles 71 and 108. They should consider a new Bill, Spouses of President Bill maybe.”
