Ghanaian Chronicle: "When the Minister of Finance, Mr. Seth Terkper, appended his signature to a document in October last year, authorizing the release GHc142,071, 974.48 as gratuity payments due the over aged soldiers of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) for the  1988 and 1989 year groups, it was great moment of joy for the then retiring soldiers.

But their joy has now been short-lived as the amount approved for them by the Chancellor of the Exchequer has reportedly been slashed down by GAF, for reasons they do not know about. "
