Akufo-Addo freezes salary increment for himself and all appointees of the Executive

The president, Akofu-Addo has placed an embargo on salary increment for himself, his Vice, and all the appointees of the executive for this year as a way of contributing to the reduction of the effect of the virus on the local economy.

The president places an embargo on salary increases for this year? This makes me wonder if salaries are increased every single year. This move is obviously to fill their pockets. It would make sense to only increase your salaries if you contribute positively to the economy. They should work for those pay raises and not when the country is performing worse year-by-year.

This doesn’t communicate anything positive to me, other than another form of deceit.
