News information coming has shown how each and every Member of Parliament after serving for a four-year tenure in office would receive a whopping amount of Ghc452,000 as send-off money for serving the country.
Well, the question is why should it be so?? It can be stated as a fact that these ministers make lots of money whiles serving the country and also have a lot of incentives that come with the work which should be enough for them to ignore the ex gratia for it to be used in building the nation which they claim to love and be serving.
In the latest development, the ministers have called for an increment in the amount of ex gratia that they receive stating the reason that it is not enough and they deserve more for the hard work that they keep doing in building the nation.
According to the members of parliament, they would want their ex gratia to be increased to Ghc600,000 which is very absurd comparing the little development they bring to society.
Netizens upon hearing about the ex gratia been received have expressed shock with many calling for it to be scrapped away.
SEE SOME REACTIONS BELOW:
I think that Ex Gratia for MPs MUST be scrapped.
After poor citizens paying for them to enjoy free cars, free accommodation, free fuel, free travels, salaries and other juicy benefits, there is no need to pay each of the 275 members over 500,000 cedis at the end of their years.

There’s monthly salaries of MPs, allowances in various forms, per diems, other bonus etc etc etc
Then after 4 years, there’s also gargantuan ex gratia
MPs (some) dey work but those sums aren’t in the interest of fairness and equity if you compared to other public sector workers

When the Exit Thanks is scrapped, it will reduce the ill motive of some of these greedy people to contest for parliamentary seats paving way for brilliant minds with no funding to contest for parliamentary seats with the aim of development and not enriching themselves
