Former leader of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has said he’ll not be in a rush to give his pay to battle COVID-19 in light of the fact that the President and his representatives have done likewise.
The past President said it’s smarter to you his asset to buy gear to battle the danger which he’s right now doing.
The NDC flagbearer further expressed that giving one’s pay to the COVID-19 reserve won’t take care of the issue. He said during a meeting on Joy News.
“What we need now are items and so if I have money I would rather prefer to buy Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) for frontline health workers and that’s what I’m doing at the moment. I am spending money on buying PPEs and distributing them. Somebody decides to donate his salary, that’s fine. Everybody does what he thinks he can do best to help. I believe that donating my salary in the future will not help,”
