Special aide to Togbe Afede XIV has rebutted allegations by host of Good Evening Ghana, Paul Adom Otchere that his reversal of nearly 400,000 cedis as ex-gratia to the state coffers is only hypocritical and does not make him any righteous. The host of Good Evening Ghana who also doubles as Chairman of the Ghana Airport company yesterday launched a blistering attack on the respected Agbomefia of Asogli State describing him as ignorant for not knowing that his membership of the Council of State made him eligible for Ex-gratia. The Good Evening Ghana host described Togbe Afede’s actions as populist after he criticized the practice of politicians doling out huge amounts of money to each other as ex-gratia every four years. The revered traditional Chief, who himself was a beneficiary of nearly 400,000 Ghana cedis said he refunded the amount to the Controller and Accountant General’s Department Account after he noticed some strange credit to his account.

In his letter of June 6, Togbe Afede said he did not find it right to receive such huge amounts of money after four years when he was paid monthly. But Mr. Adom Otchere said the respected chief cannot absorb himself fully but in a sharp response by Dr. Elipklim Kwabla Apetorgbor, Special aide to Togbe Afede XIV,  said it was a waste of intellectual resource and tongue to engage the likes of “unethical and ignorant Paul Adom Otchere and his promoters.”

“It is very unfortunate that to the jaundiced eye, everything is yellow”. The statement said.

The statement also threw a challenge to Mr. Adom Otchere and his “paymasters” to prove otherwise that Togbe Afede during his time on the Council of state never received any traveling allowance from Ho

The statement goes further to state that the country is not in good times and urged the good people of Ghana to expose all evil conspiracies and corruption in order to rescue the nation and its resources from further decadence.
