President Mahama is practicing nepotism, former rector of the Ghana Institute of Management Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei has revealed.
The former GIMPA rector says that according to his research findings, one out of every four of the Mahama's appointments come from his area of origin at Damango in the Northern Region.
“One of the things going on which is totally unacceptable is about why one out of every four public sector appointment comes from the President’s area of origin. That is totally unacceptable because we are a unified country, we are a country whereby if you take any major group, whether Gas, Ashantis or Ewes you can form a cabinet from it,” he alleged at Prempeh Colleges’ Pearson Osae lectures.
Nepotism is the unfair practice by a powerful person of giving jobs and other favors to relatives instead of persons who are experienced for the job.
