In return, president Mahama, who is due to hand over on January 7, will approve that of parliamentarians.

The practice has been severely criticised as lacking transparency by anti-corruption groups.

It has also generated a barrage of criticisms against Article 71 office holders as some accused them of taking home unreasonable amount of money.

Details of what the president is entitled are scanty and it is also unclear when the president will approve the ex-gratia for parliamentarians.
