Felix Kwakye Ofosu, former Deputy Minister of Communication under the erstwhile Mahama administration, has said that Akufo Addo is filling up state institutions including the courts with his relatives just to protect his interest.
Mr Kwakye Ofosu believes persons who have gotten appointed by the President recently to Head strategic state institutions are partisans of the President and the appointments driven by a deep-seated quest to capture the state with people who are loyal to him.
He stated in a Facebook post that, “He has packed the courts so that no case, no matter how justified, will pass against him. All other state agencies have been packed to the brim with partisans. Those that he doesn’t control, he shows open hostility to as is the case of the both the CHRAJ Commissioner and the Auditor-General”.
The comments by the former Minister comes at the back of recent appointments of four judges to the Supreme Court and the promotion of some high court judges to the appeals court.
While parliament is considering a Public Universities bill brought before it to enable the government to have a firm grip of the management of public tertiary institutions in Ghana, Felix Ofosu Kwakye claimed,
The bill which is currently before parliament pending approval has been widely opposed by stakeholders in the education sector and a section of parliamentarians.
