The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, has donated part of his monthly stipend of GH¢1,500 to ace Ghanaian actor, Psalm Adjeteyfio, popularly known as T.T.
His gesture is in response to a cry for help by the famed actor for the payment of his rent which was due.
Mr Quartey, who is also the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso Central, in a letter, said he is inspired by T.T’s positive impact in the movie and entertainment industry, hence is committing to the monthly deduction of GH¢1,500 from his parliamentary salary to be paid to T.T.
“I have, therefore, placed a standing order for the monthly transfers to your account effective September 2021 till the end of my tenure in the Eighth Parliament of the Fourth Republic on 7th January 2025,” he said.
Below is the Minister’s notice to Parliament:
