Adom-Otchere said that the decision by Togbe Afede to return the GH₵ 365,000 ex-gratia was hypocritical, asaaseradio.com reports. According to asaaseradio.com, the broadcaster made these remarks while reacting to the executive director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), Sulemana Braimah’s, commendation of Togbe Afede. Togbe Afede XIV drew praises from Ghanaians after he rejected a huge sum of money as Ex-gratia for his service in the Council of State. But, Togbe Afede XIV thought the extra payment was inappropriate for a short, effectively part-time work for which he received a monthly salary and was entitled to other privileges.
