Unfaithful Bawumia can’t use 50 ministers in his government – Leading NDC Member

A leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Henry Osei Akoto is doubting the Vice President and the Flagbearer of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for using 50 ministers in his government if voted in power.

According to him, it is impossible for the Vice President to use such a few people in his government due to the number of people in his campaign team and his manifesto committee.

In his post on X, Henry Osei Akoto stated; Campaign team members 41.
Manifesto team members 319.
10 appointments per Constituency, making 2,750.

You believe that Bawumia will appoint 50 ministers?

The signs are on the wall.

The Flagbearer for NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia said his administration will not have more than 50 Ministers and Deputy Ministers.

This follows numerous calls on the Akufo-Addo-led government by stakeholders, including the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), and Civil Society Organisations to reduce the size of his government to lessen the pressure on the country’s coffers.

Addressing the nation in Accra on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, to outline his vision and priorities for Ghana, Dr Bawumia said running an efficient system of governance will require fewer ministers.

According to him, his government will enhance the role of the private sector along with fiscal and administrative decentralization while improving how systems and institutions function.

This, he said, would lead to greater efficiency by cutting down waste and ensuring value for money in procurement.

“The move towards the private sector provision of many public services would create fiscal space of at least 3% of GDP.

“This represents a major paradigm shift. Additionally, an efficient system of governance will require even fewer ministers. Therefore I would have no more than 50 ministers and deputy ministers,’’ he added.
