Ghana, just like any other country in the world, is managed by high and mighty people whose mistakes could ruin your life for good. These carefully selected souls are no exception!
1. President Mahama
There is no doubt that President Mahama is the most powerful man in Ghana today. He is the commander-in-chief who determines issues of life and death in the country. A little policy mistake by the president has the effect of either jeopardizing the peace and stability of the country, moreso ruining the life of citizens.
2. Charlotte Osei
With 2016 being an election year, never a day goes by without the mention of Charlotte Osei. She is in no doubt the most respected woman in Ghana all because her actions and inactions could either result in a peaceful election process or a disastrous one.
3. Georgina Wood
The almighty chief justice is a queen in her own regard. This is a personality who never bends to the whims and caprices of government. She adjudicates what she believes is the best laws. Can you imagine what could happen if she rules that no Ghanaian should attain a college degree? Yea! that shows how powerful she is.
4. Alex Segbefia
Never be fooled, the health minister is key in determining the best prescriptions for you, the effectiveness of the NHIS, your right to specific therapies and vaccinations in Ghana. If Alex Sebgefia orders all vaccination units to stop Polio vaccinations, my goodness! We would spark an international outrage.
5. John Kudalor
Your security is always paraemount and the IGP knows it best. COP John Kudalor is in charge of the police - Ghana's single law enforcement unit. Imagine what could happen if the IGP orders all police personell to mount complete body searches on our streets. It will be news and a great deal of inconvenience to your privacy.
6. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang
Education is key. Ghana's education minister is probably one of the busiest ministers in Ghana today. She determines what we read, learn...even the examinations we write. She is powerful!
7. Seth Terkper
And there comes the money keeper! All the financial policies of government passes through the almighty Seth Terkper. He determines whether too much dollars should circulate our economy or whether you can borrow cash at a particular interest rate. If Seth messes up, just know your money matter will mess up too.
