Policy think tank IMANI Africa has indicated that some major decisions taken by the Akufo -Addo administration are indicative of a government which is ill prepared to deliver on its promises to the country.
Speaking at a public lecture on the topic: “Managing the expectations of the electorate and the delivering of electoral promises”, President of IMANI, Franklin Cudjoe, said the president failed to prove his commitment to managing the scarce resources of the country by attempting to justify his appointment of a hundred and ten ministers within the first few months of his administration.
“I must emphasize that a hundred days in government is a little early to judge the performance of any government. however if there is ever the clearest indication of unpreparedness in executing the many promises the NPP made into their vagueness, it was clearly in the appointment of a hundred and ten ministers, the highest ever in the country’s history.”
He added: ““You should know by now that the office of government machinery will accommodate all these hundred and ten ministers and that office alone had been allocated almost 1.56 billion Ghana cedis and that is sixty percent of all allocations going to the Ministries of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Roads and Highways, Communication, Railway Development Aviation and Transport”.
