Member of Parliament for Ningo Pampram constituency, Sam George maybe heading to court following news on the salaries that will paid the wives of the President and Vice President dated back to 2017.
According to the NDC MP plans to pay the spouses of Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia is not necessary because the nation needs money for more pressing issues.

Speaking on Neat FM, Sam George noted that this development was never approved by the seventh Parliament.
He stressed that he is a member of Parliament and he doesn’t buy into spouses of the President and Vice President being paid because they are not public officers but wives. He quizzed if the nation is also going say the spouse of the speaker of Parliament should also get paid.
”I am a member of Parliament, personally I do not buy the idea, whether it is an NDC President or NPP President, your wife doesn’t hold any public office but a wife,” he stated.
He added that he is against it and not in any way in support of it.
