The subject of ex-gratia has dominated the headlines in recent times after
Togbe Afede instead of extolling his virtuals for returning the ₵365,000 amount deposited into his account as his ex-gratia.
Togbe had returned the money because according to him, he does not deserve to be paid such a huge amount of money for doing little.
Given this, a leaked document containing the huge amount of money both lawmakers from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) & National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been shared online.
According to Google, ex-gratia is a voluntary payment that is done by the employer to an employee who is not eligible for the facilities of bonus.
Ex-gratia can also be considered as gratitude by the management to a worker/employee towards their work which is given out of free will when the company is making profits.
