Samira Bawumia to refund over GHC 887k paid her since 2017

The Second Lady of the Republic, Samira Bawumia has announced she will refund a total amount of eight hundred and eighty-seven thousand, four hundred and eighty-two (GHC 887,482) she has thus far received as allowances from January 2017 to March 2021.

The Second Lady’s move follows a similar step by the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo. The First Lady in an earlier statement announced her decision to refund to the State a total of eight hundred and ninety-nine thousand and ninety-seven Ghana cedis (GHc 899,097.00).

The decision by the two has been attributed to the recent backlash from the public following the recommendation made by the Professor Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu Committee which was subsequently approved by parliament.
