Kofi Koranteng, a presidential aspirant in the upcoming elections, has claimed that not more than 10 ministries are needed to run a country.
According to Kofi Koranteng, having a lot of ministries does not guarantee the effectiveness of a government.
He made this known while speaking at a presidential debate organised by IMANI Africa and JoyNews.

Kofi Koranteng said:
“Efficiency is what gives you effectiveness. Because we are coming in with a science-based data-driven human-centred government we know exactly what needs to be done."
Kofi Koranteng said if Ghanaians give him the chance to become the president of Ghana, he would run a very tight government with only 10 ministries.
He mentioned the Agriculture, Energy, Employment, Entrepreneurial Development, Finance, Foreign Affairs, Health, Interior, Trade and Industry, and Justice as the ministries he would be working with to run the country.
He explained that it is important for people to elect a leadership structure that applies a science based data driven human-centred consciousness to the way things are done.

The former Education Minister noted at an event to mark International Youth Day:
"I sympathise with young mothers, but you will be happy to know when our manifesto is launched that we have increased the maternity leave.
"We have moved it from three months to four months fully paid maternity leave and we are also going to ensure that until the child is nine months, the woman truly has time."
