Ken Ofori-Atta says he doesn’t take salary and per diem, as finance minister?
Once upon a time, Kweku Ananse and his five kids were hit by severe famine. Being the finance minister of his home, Kweku Ananse travelled far and wide in search for food for his family.
Fortunately, he discovered a solitary plantain plant with five fingers of plantain on it. He harvested, sent it home and cooked for the family. To the shock of his kids, he gave each a finger and because they were five, Kweku Ananse himself did not get any.
“My kids, please, have you seen the sacrifices I have been doing for you? Have you seen that I did not get any of the plantain?”, Kweku Ananse asked.
His kids, having sympathy for their dad, enquired what they could do to help him. “Give me half of your plantain each so that I can also eat.” He appealed to them. All his five kids obliged and gave half of their plantain to him.
Kweku Ananse took them, and consumed accordingly. You can see from the story that he got more than his five kids combined.
