Former Deputy Attorney General (AG) and Minister of Justice, Osei Kwame Prempeh, has alleged that the past Mahama led government recruited around 11,000 'party boys' into the public sector during the short transition period following the National Decratic Congress's (NDC) defeat at the December 7th polls.
Speaking on Oman FM, Hon Osei Prempeh made these revelations during a discussion on reports that New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters besieged certain state institutions threatening to forcefully remove the resident staff.
“Somebody informed me that the immediate past NDC administration recruited over 11,000 people into the public sector including Tema Port during the transition period,” he alleged.

According to the former Member of Parliament for Nsuta-Kwamenang Beposo constituency in the Ashanti Region, the sitting NPP government would use all legal means to review all the Mahama led government's 'last minute' recruitments in the public sector.
He further stated that the Nana Addo administration would be sure to remove individuals who lack the qualification who were only recruited based on the political affiliations with the then ruling NDC.
"NPP will not allow the past government to tie its hands at the back,” said the former Deputy AG.
“As we speak, President Nana Akufo-Addo is still appointing his ministers and so we will wait after we are done with the appointments and have taken over fully, then we will look into all these issues.
“So our supporters should be patient. They should worry about getting some job to do,” he assured.
