- According to government, Mr. Mahama has been paid more than half a million Ghana cedis since the NPP took office on January 7, 2017
Claims that government has refused to pay former president John Dramani Mahama his monthly salary and arrears are reportedly untrue.
According to a publication by the Daily Guide newspaper, all of Mahama’s monthly salaries and arrears owed him have been paid by government.
The newspaper reported that although the ex-president was owed salary arrears for 12 months, the accumulated arrears of GH¢29,899 have been paid.

According to the Daily Guide publication, documents available to it shows that Mahama is not owed salary arrears currently and has been consistently receiving his monthly salary of GHc29,899 from January 2018 to July 18, 2018.
This comes after Mahama’s spokesperson alleged that the former president has not been receiving his salary for some months now.
Speaking in an interview with Okay FM, Joyce Mogtari said the situation means that Lordina Mahama is now the bread winner of the family.
"Maa Lordina is a very hard working woman; she is still running and managing her businesses and so I am sure that maybe she is the one taking care of our father [John Mahama] and by God’s grace everything is well but what government should give to them, none has been given," Mrs. Mogtari said.

The publication said as at now, a net total of GH¢568,049.00 has been paid into the Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) account of former President Mahama.
