      2. In US Dollar terms, the Ghc559 allowance is $46 today compared to $82 in 2016 when the allowance was even only Ghc350 using the exchange rates of Ghc13.1 and Ghc4.28 for both November 2022 and December 2016 respectively

      3. The year-on inflation for October 2022 is 40.4% which means the new service personnel will be taking only about 60% of the value of their immediate senior if the new personnel take the same Ghc559
