NPP’s transition team rejects sitting allowance, food

The transition team of the incoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration has rejected allowances and other benefits which come with their work.

According to the spokesperson of the team Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the move was part of one of the austere measures to save the ailing economy.

The MP-elect for Ofoase-Ayiribi in the Eastern region told the media, the transition team on the part of the NPP has refused to be fed at the expense of the State.

The former broadcaster stated Nana Akufo-Addo’s representatives have received all the handing over notes from the outgoing government.

“The interim report that we have provided for the president-elect essentially cover the basic bits of information we have received currently and most importantly some national security briefings between himself and his representative on the team responsible for national security, Mr. Albert Kan Dapaah. But the detailed interim report is what you just saw us meeting about which will be submitted to him before the inauguration day,” he added.

Meanwhile, he said the president-elect has requested for a comprehensive report on the state of the country ahead of the swearing-in ceremony in order to inform his decision from January 7, 2017 when he takes over.
