Why I appointed 110 Ministers – President Akufo-Addo

Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has defended his decision to appoint 110 Ministers.

Speaking on national television on Friday, Akufo-Addo said it was a necessity.

“I’m aware that people are concerned about what they see as maybe the cost of this large government.

“It is a necessary investment to make”, he said.

He also argued that the costs of his new government, would not be as high as people have complained about.

“The number, for instance, among the deputy ministers — 42 out of 50 are all parliamentarians, and in effect converting them from parliamentarians into ministers, the marginal cost of that transformation is minimal in terms of the public exchequer,” he said.
