According to him, the time spent attending the board meetings were no different from his normal working hours, and therefore, didn’t see the need to receive allowances for such a purposes.
It was reported that, He ordered his accountant to pay all such monies amounting to GH¢12,696 back to chest on Monday, 17th November, 2020.
The said amount was meant for six different meetings he attended with his board between the period of December 2018 to May 2020.
Mr. Amidu was presented with a cheque for an amount of GH¢5560, meant as board allowances from August to December 2018 on December 21st, 2018.
He was later paid GH¢1440 each, meant for four other board sitting allowances.
The latest of payments made to him was an amount of GH¢1376, as allowance for sitting in an entity tender committee meeting on May 21, 2020.
