"I can’t tell [my exact salary], because they will do all kinds of deductions and at certain times some of the monies will hit your account and you don’t even know…As at 2013, 2014, the money that I get from Parliament is GH¢40. There was a time I even thought they stopped paying me from Parliament and I’m getting money from the executive alone but when I got there, they said no, we are doing some deductions, your car loan this and that… So you don’t even understand the whole thing they were doing," she said.
