Togbe Afede Returns GHC365,000 ex-gratia to State

The Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State, Togbe Afede XIV has returned GHC365,392.67 paid to him as ex-gratia for serving on the Council of State between 2017 and 2020.

According to the paramount chief, it is inappropriate to be paid ex-gratia since he was given monthly wages for serving on the council.

“I did not think the payment was made to trap me, as is being speculated. I believe it was paid to everybody who served on the Council of State. However, I thought that extra payment was inappropriate for a short, effectively part-time work, for which I received a monthly salary and was entitled to other privileges. So, I was very uncomfortable with it,” Togbe Afede XIV said in a statement.

According to the paramount chief, it is inappropriate to be paid ex-gratia since he was given monthly wages for serving on the council of state.
