Abronye Insists Mahama Received ₵14 Million Ex-gratia Without Proof

The Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe Abronye, has insisted that former President John Dramani Mahama received the largest amount of gratuity, otherwise known as ex-gratia, in 2013.

This was after the former president through his aide denied taking ₵14 million as gratuity in 2013.

“Mr Mahama’s press release sought to admit that he indeed received ex-gratia but did not actually receive the stated GH₵14 million as opined but unfortunately Mr Mahama failed to tell Ghanaians what he received as ex gratia in 2013.

“Let me reiterate my position that Mr John Mahama indeed received GH₵14 million as ex-gratia in 2013 which was credited into his Agricultural Development Bank Account”, the NPP leader stated.

Abronye reiterated that the amount was the “fattest” ex-gratia ever given to a President of this Republic.

He, however, failed to provide substantial evidence to support his allegations as challenged by Mahama.

“Again Mr Mahama must understand that no ex-gratia of any former president has been captured in the Auditor-General’s report since 1992”, he said in defence of his lack of evidence.
