Disregard report that I have refunded allowances paid me as First Lady, it’s fake– Lordina Mahama
Former First Lady Lordina Mahama has reacted to a report suggesting that she has refunded all allowances paid her during the tenure of his husband as Vice President and President of Ghana.
She has posted and refuted the statement which alleges that she has refused all allowances paid her from 2016 to 2021 into the national coffers on her social media pages
This development comes on the back of a move by First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo to refund all allowances paid her from 2017 to date following the backlash from Ghanaians after the Emoluments Committee agreed for her to be paid formally.
The Second Lady., Samira Bawumia also issued a statement moments thereafter stating that she has refunded all allowances paid her into the national coffers and will not go ahead to accept the proposed salary and allowance by the Emoluments Committee.
Thereafter, some Ghanaians began to call on Lordina Mahama to also do the needful by toeing the line of the presidential spouses and refunding all allowances paid her.
Reacting to a report circulating on social media that she has refunded allowances paid to her, Lordina Mahama said Ghanaians should consider the statement as fake since she has not refunded any money back to the state.
