In giving us the narrations, he should have acknowledged that he was unable to attend all the conferences of the Council of State, but he took all his salaries together with his automotive mortgage, a waiver from Ghana Ports and Harbour’s Authority to import vehicles…the quantity of monies authorities [took] off the loans that had been paid to the Council of State members are more than the GH¢365k he’s speaking about, for an individual who solely attended 16 p.c of Council of State conferences…

“In case you verify the Council of State transportation allowances, Togbe’s allowance had been paid as of coming from Ho in the Volta area; a few of the members instructed me that ordinarily, he lives in Accra however he stated he was coming from Ho.”

“Out of 242 conferences that had been held [by the Council of State], Togbe Afede, who chair’s a committee and whose conferences are few – as a md he was usually not accessible – attended 16 p.c of the conferences and he took each allowance…
