The hardship in the country has nothing to do with the number of Ministers in Akufo-Addo’s – Defence Minister says

Ghana’s Minister of Defense, Dominic Nitiwul has brushed off suggestions that the country’s bloated government is to blame for the country’s dire economic situation.

He said that the difficulties the nation is currently experiencing have nothing to do with the number of appointees the present administration is currently using.

Mr. Nitiwul said that such claims are incorrect since the size of the government at the moment has no bearing on the present economic difficulties.

“Generally, how much is a Minister paid…that you think that the failure to reduce the Ministers is the reason Ghanaians are suffering? It may not be necessarily the case…Mahama’s government had between 85 and 86, we have similar numbers now, so to pin it [size of government] on the suffering of the masses is far-fetched,” he argued.

The Akufo-Addo administration was absolved by the defence minister of any responsibility for the National Cathedral construction’s complications.

He said that the government’s assistance in the construction of a single place of worship for Christians is a step in the right direction.

“If you tell me Government has no place in helping the church where a catholic and Pentecostal can worship, it is not fair. The government continues to spend on religious bodies. We may criticize all that is being done, but let us not criticize what is being done for God.”
