Akufo-Addo should go ahead and announce one district, one minister - Asiedu Nketia




The National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has described the government’s announcement of additional 54 ministers on Wednesday as “misplaced.”

He suggests that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) does not need a huge team to improve the economic fortunes of the country.

Speaking to Gifty Andoh on The Pulse on JOYNEWS, he said the appointment of more ministers’ by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s shows he “doesn’t understand governance.”

“They don’t know what they are talking about. They should proceed to appoint one minister, one district and one minister, one constituency,” he said, mocking the President's 2016 election campaign's one district, one factory, and one village, one dam mantra.

The President has announced a list of 50 deputy Ministers and four (4) Ministers of state, bringing the total number of Ministerial appointees in the government to 110.

Information Minister, Mustapha Hamid, has explained at a news conference that government considered the “mismanaged” nature of the economy before making the appointments.

He said Ghanaians should prefer a President who will assemble a "huge team of competent people" than the one who will appoint a small number of Ministers who will misapply state funds.

But Mr Asiedu Nketia has said the huge team of ministers appointed by the President will put unnecessary pressure on the public purse.

The additional Ministers, he said would all be given police escorts, land cruisers, salaries and saloon cars which he described as needless.
