The Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe Abronye has taken the government to the Supreme Court over its decision to formalize the payment of allowances to the spouses of the president and his vice.

Abronye in his suit argued that the move by government is not enshrined in law and should be outrightly dismissed by the court.

In papers filed on Thursday, July 8, 2021, Abronye DC said that the emolument committee which made the proposal which was ratified by parliament and adopted by the government was not clothed with the powers to make such recommendations.

He is praying the apex court to declare as illegal, the decision by the committee and prevent government from effecting payment to the intended beneficiaries.
