Cut down the size of ministers – John Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has challenged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to immediately cut the size of his government by about 40 Ministers and Deputy Ministers.

This, he said, will bring efficiency by reducing government expenditure and help balance the budget.

Mahama said the reduction of the number of ministers will make no difference to the already lacklustre performance of the Akufo-Addo administration.

Speaking during a closed-door meeting with some disappointed business owners and importers in his office on Monday, he noted, in reaction to concerns about government’s increasing budget overruns that, “there can be no justification for some of the ministerial portfolios created by this administration.”

“The Senior Minister, Minister of State in the Office of Vice President, Minister of State in the Office of Senior Minister, Ministers for Procurement, Monitoring and Evaluation, Business Development, Special Initiatives, Aviation, Railway Development are all an unnecessary charge on the public purse,” Mahama stated.
