Oh!aba Ghana, what is juicy about this!! why are we treating our service men like this? People in police, customs,fire service, army and other security services who serve our nation under difficulty circumstances and hence a befitting retirment package is only proper. Let's not be wicked citizens. when they are treated bad after retirement like this, it'll encourage stealing and corruption whist they are in the service

Does the CFO decide on his own benefits.
I was confused when I started reading it so hard to go back to read the headline again. I don't know what's wrong with these later day saint journalists,it's like they are on a competition to bring out false news just to get paid. They should go and learn from Elizabeth Ohene,and Cameroun Duodo on the print media and Tommy Annan Forson for news in English and Papa Kwasi Donkor, Okoh Dagadu,Kosi Dompreh,Mame Afia Konadu etc for the Ghanaian Languages they made this country proud with decency and civility not these afuom news by adomfm and co.in the private media especially the Akan news readers,some are very appalling to listen.
