He has refunded his, close to the tune of GH¢238,000.”

Mr Arhin added that other officeholders including, some staff members at the Jubilee House have also been directed by the Chief of Staff to do the same.

 

 

“With respect to the others, Deputy Ministers, Ministers and also the Vice President as well, all of those refunds will be made. The President made his on the second of this month that is last week Thursday and other appointees will also follow suit,” he said.
