Speaking to Accra-based Joy FM, Kufuor scored the ruling government a little above 50 per cent.

“Definitely, within the time frame, I would say [their performance] is over 50 per cent,” the former president said.

“They (current government) have a plate full of challenges which they are trying to tackle radically but given the time limits given to them, it is not easy, but I believe they have taken some far-reaching steps which should be appreciated,” he added.

Kufuor further disclosed that he has not been paid his ex-gratia since he left office as president.

Kufuor served as President of Ghana between 2001 and 2009, before handing power to the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) John Evans Atta-Mills.

However, the ex-president insists he hasn’t received his ex-gratia since he left office some nine years ago.

“I haven’t been paid ex-gratia,” he stated, adding that “the administration that took over from me pretended there hasn’t been such approval,” Kufuor added.

According to him, even the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government is yet to pay him what is due since coming into office.

Kufuor was, however, quick to add that he is not bothered by the non-payment of his ex-gratia, insisting it is not his focus.
