President Akufo-Addo’s Salary Is Just Half Of The COCOBOD CEO’s Salary

You would think that the President of Ghana will be the highest earning government employee.

Literally, he is the Chief Executive Officer of the country and all other appointees and heads of institutions are like his middle level management staff.

With this, it will be only natural that the President’s take home pay will be higher than that of all the “middle level” management staff.

In Ghana and in the case of the President versus the COCOBOD CEO, Joseph Boahen Aidoo, the table turns in the payment structure.

The president earns GHS 22,000 a month, meanwhile, his subordinate, the COCOBOD CEO earns GHS 44,000 a month.

That is twice the president’s salary.

The current GHS 44,000 COCOBOD CEO salary is also far less than what the former COCOBOD CEO, Dr Stephen Puni was earning.

Dr Puni’s GHS 50,000 monthly salary made the headlines when the NPP assumed power.

Our question is, why become the president and avail yourself to verbal attacks when you can just become a COCOBOD CEO instead and earn twice what the president earns?
