Mahama bags 420,000, MPs pocket 271,000 as take home salary

President John Mahama is set to pocket a staggering 423,428 cedis as his take home salary as he adjusts to life as a former president. Members of Parliament in the just ended session (including those who were re-elected) are also set to take home 270,992 cedis.
This was revealed by the Finder newspaper in its lead story for Tuesday January 10, 2017.

According to the paper, the immediate past Speaker of Parliament Edward Adjaho would also take home 338,740 cedis.

As at 2016 a Member of Parliament earns 19,430 cedis monthly, 17,791 cedis for the Speaker and 22,809 cedis for the President.
How does this compare to ordinary public sector workers?
The least paid public servant on the Single Spine Salary structure earns 207.90 cedis every month while the highest paid public servant earns 4,325.20 cedis.

This means that the least paid worker earns just one person of an MPs’ salary and would take him/her seven years to make earn an MPs monthly salary.
The highest paid worker would have to wait three months to earn the monthly pay of an MPs’ salary which is 22 percent of a legislator’s salary.
