The #FixtheCountry movement is readying itself to go to court after being rebuffed by the Presidency in their pursuit of information on the emoluments of some Presidential staffers.
The Presidency declined a Right to Information request for information on the compensation and privileges available to Director of Communications at Jubilee House Eugene Arhin and three other staffers.
The Presidency argues that the information #Fixthecountry movement requested was personal thus cannot be provided to the movement.
Fixthecountry has since written to President Nana Akufo-Addo to review the decision.
A Spokesperson for the movement Oliver Barker Vormawor says the information the movement sought is a piece of public information as it is made from the public purse.
He was surprised at the Presidency’s response as the Office of Chief of Staff recently released the salaries of staff at former President John Mahama’s office.
Oliver Barker Vormawor told Sena Nombo on the Gold Morning Conversation, the presidency seems preoccupied with releasing information that is damaging to their opponents.
He said #Fixthe country is only interested in ensuring that public office holders are held to account.
Oliver Barker Vormawor said their interest in the compensation and privileges available to Eugene Arhin was piqued after he built bungalows for police officers at Awutu Senya West.
Oliver Barker Vormawor further cited the properties disclosed in the divorce papers filed by Eugene Arhin’s ex-wife as evidence that the Communications Director at Jubilee House has questions to answer.
