Former ministers under the erstwhile Mahama administration are sent whatsapp messages to retrieve their ex-Gratia at the flagstaff house, former Roads and Highways Minister Inusah Fuseini has said.
“I received a WhatsApp message that my end of service benefit as a minister was ready…initially when I got there, I parked my car outside and I was told I was a former minister and I was told that I am a former minister so I should park inside.
“When I parked and was going into the Flagstaff House I just straight into the scanner and I was stopped and for the first time I realized there was a change of government.”
The former appointees especially ministers, their deputies and former Members of Parliament are being directed to the Flagstaff House for their packages.
The Tamale Central lawmaker in an interview with Starr News said he only came to terms that the Mahama administration is out of power after he got to the Flagstaff House for his benefit.
The ex-gratia is a lump sum paid to all officials who fall under the 71 office holders of the 1992 constitution. The payment is made after a new administration takes office.
