The former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Samuel Koku Anyidoho has reacted to the reduction in the number of Ministers in Nana Addo’s second term in office.
Nana Addo had decided to form his government with a number of ministers that no president has ever used in Ghana since independence, aimed at helping him deliver on his promises to the people of Ghana after successfully winning power from the NDC and formed his government in 2017.
It, however, became a topical issue in the country as many believed the number was just outrageous which would put a strain on the nation’s purse.
In his second term, after securing victory in the 2020 December polls, the size of government has been significantly reduced by Nana Addo with some ministries scrapped.
The reduction in the number of ministers, according to Koku Anyidoho, is as a result of the fact that Nana Addo is a listening President who has listened to the people who complained that the size of government was too much.
Koku Anyidoho, the embattled NDC stalwart took to Twitter to react to the news, saying that it is good to have a listening President in Nana Addo rather than an obstinate one who wouldn’t listen to anyone.
“Very heartening read in today’s Ghanaian Times; Hon Kojo Oppong Nkrumah is assuring the nation that, the “record govt size” of the past, shall not surface in the New Govt.
It is good to have a listening Prez than an obstinate one.
Let’s build a Better Ghana. Shalom,” Koku Anyidoho wrote on Twitter.
Nana Addo’s second term will see him work with some 85 ministers which represents a drastic reduction from the about 126 he had in his first term in office.
