EXCLUSIVE: With Hon Inusah Fuseini On NPP Size Of Ministers And What NDC Might Do


The Member of Parliament for Tamale Central constituency and the former Minister for Lands and Natural Resources in the Mahama’s administration in an exclusive interview with Ngamegbulam Chidozie Stephen of Apexnewsgh.com said the Akufo the large number of President Akufo Addo Ministers was the first Manifestation of the fact that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo did not intend to keep his promises to Ghanaians.

He said, even though the Akufo Addo- Bawumia led government used about 130 ministers, he wasn’t able to accomplish anything as a government, stressing that the NDC government will scale down the number to 80,85 or at least 90 ministers of States

“The first indication we have that Nana Akufo Addo was a deception when he had told us that he was going to protect the public purse and given the opportunity, he appointed the largest number of Ministers and other appointees in the history of Ghana. That was the first manifestation of the fact that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo -Addo did not intend to keep his promises.”

“Now, there is no coronation between the number of Ministers that you appoint and what you are able to accomplish as a government. If not, Nana Akufo Addo would have accomplished a lot, because he has appointed up to about 130 ministers but, he’s got nothing to show for it.”

“With 85 ministers under John Dramani, we have a lot to show for it, it goes to show clearly that you required people with zeal, dedication, energy, and commitment towards bettering the lives of fellow Ghanaians to be in the offices to be able to deliver the promises made by the president. So, an NDC government will definitely scale down the number of Ministers that will be appointed into office.”

“There is no reason to appoint 5 ministers for one ministry in the instance of the Ministry of Agric, there is no reason, so we will scale down the number of Ministers and ensure that energetic, committed, and zealous people are put into offices to deliver on the public goods that will move Ghana in the right direction.”

“We have worked with 80 and 85 ministers of State. So, definitely, the number of ministers who will be appointed will be below 100, will be 90, might be below 85 because John Dramani Mahama intends to deliver on the campaign promises and he intends to that with the smallest number of ministers, he intends to ensure that public offices civil servants who are responsible for the ministries will put their heads together and get the promises delivered by the policymakers of the NDC and that is the ministers of state. The NDC government will work with the smallest number of Ministers to achieve a lot because we have done it before and we can do it again” He said
