One of such appointees is former Roads and Highways Minister Inusah Fuseini.
The Tamale Central lawmaker in an interview with Starr News said he only came to terms that the Mahama administration is out of power after he got to the Flagstaff House for his benefit.
"I received a WhatsApp message that my end of service benefit as a minister was ready…initially when I got there, I parked my car outside and I was told I was a former minister and I was told that I am a former minister so I should park inside", he said.
The former minister also revealed how he was treated at seat of government.
“When I parked and was going into the Flagstaff House I just straight into the scanner and I was stopped and for the first time I realized there was a change of government.”
