The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has announced his intention to eliminate certain allowances for government officials, directors, and the political class if re-elected in the December 7 polls.

Specifically, he plans to end the payment of fuel, DSTV, utility bills, and other benefits currently provided to these individuals.

Mahama explained that this move is aimed at saving the country money and that high-profile officials should pay their utility bills like every other citizen.

He stated,”We will discontinue the payment of utility bills, fuel, DSTV, etc., as conditions of service for top government officials, directors, and the political class. We believe that people should be responsible for paying their own electricity and water bills, just as every other Ghanaian does.”

“Unless you are using a government vehicle or are on a government assignment, you should purchase your own fuel if you are using your personal car. We are going to put an end to that”.

Furthermore, he emphasized that unless officials are using a government vehicle or on a government assignment, they should purchase their own fuel if using personal cars. “We are going to put an end to that,” he stressed.
