TUC’s Yaw Baah must apologise to Mrs Akufo-Addo and Samira Bawumia – Eugene Arhin

Dr. Yaw Baah, TUC General Secretary

The Director of Communications at the office of the President, Eugene Arhin, is asking the Trades Union Congress (TUC) General Secretary, Dr. Yaw Baah, to render an apology to First Lady Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Second Lady Samira Bawumia regarding his salary arrears comment.

In a short Facebook post sighted by 24news.news, Mr. Arhin said the TUC General Secretary got it wrong by stating that the First and Second Ladies had been paid some salary arrears.

24news.news reproduces the post below:

“Salary arrears dated back to January 2017 have since been paid to the wives of President Akuffo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia, in accordance with the Committee’s recommendation which was approved by NDC and NPP Members of Parliament.

”This is what the TUC General Secretary, Dr. Yaw Baah, said in a statement dated 11th July 2021. Clearly, he was wrong, as no such “salary arrears” have been paid.

“Can he, therefore, do the needful and apologize to the First and Second Ladies for this false statement?
