Former President John Dramani Mahama has declared his intentions to slash the number of ministers who would serve when he is given the nod again to the barest minimum.
According to him, he does not see the reason why certain portfolios were created for people to occupy. One of such portfolios he said, is the senior minister portfolio.
Mahama noted that on e of the things he would immediately do would reducing the size of ministers, which would also lead to drastic reduction in the expenditure that Ghanaians spend on the office of the President.
“I will reduce the size of ministers, reduce the size of ministries and also reduce the expenditure that Ghanaians spend on the office of the President. Those are the immediate things that I will do,” he said.
The size of President Akufo-Addo's 125 ministers has always being an issue to Ghanaians and the current criticism against the size of the Akufo-Addo government is not new.
The President in an earlier attempt to justify the number, however, indicated that he needs the numbers to undertake the magnitude of work expected of him.
“As you know there are some who say my government is too big and there are too many of you [Ministers]. I am a firm believer in the adage the proof of the pudding is in the eating,” Akufo-Addo said in a public address.
