During discussions with the European Union Ambassador to Ghana, His Excellency Irchad Razaaly, former President Mahama highlighted various cost-cutting measures his administration would adopt. These include terminating free DSTV subscriptions, utility bill payments, and fuel allowances for government officials, aiming to alleviate financial strain on the state.

Mr. Mahama stressed that such benefits are a significant burden on public finances and should be abolished. He argued that government officials should cover these costs just as ordinary citizens do.

“We will discontinue the payment of utility bills, fuel, DSTV... as conditions of service for top government officials, directors, and the political class. We believe that people should take up paying their own electricity bills and water bills like every other Ghanaian does,: Mr. Mahama said

“Unless you are using a government vehicle or on government assignment, you should buy your fuel if you are using your own car. And so we are going to discontinue that.”
