Hon. Henry Quartey, Greater Accra Regional Minister, has ordered that Ghc1,500.00 is paid to veteran actor Paslm Adejetyfio as a monthly stipend for his duration in parliament.
Many notable persons have come to Psalm Adjeteyfio’s aid since his interview went viral. In the interview, Psalm Adjeteyfio begged for Ghc3,000.00 to support his rent fees, as he is on the verge of being rendered homeless.
Shortly after, the vice president of Ghana, Dr Bawumia, made a cash donation worth Ghc50,000 to the actor. McDan is also reported to have given Psalm Ghc5,000.00. While Ayisha Modi, through Rev Obofour, promised to build a house for him.
Yesterday, the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon. Henry Quartey responded to the call of the Ga Dangme Youth Association, who implored him to help Mr Adjeteyfio. He pledged to financially support the veteran actor with a monthly stied of Ghc1,500 from his salary.
