The Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak, is disputing the number of presidential staffers put out by the Jubilee House.

We need an independent head count of the number of Presidential Staffers,” he posted on his personal Facebook page.

My sources at the Presidency say the Staffers are more than the 998 names released to Parliament“, the MP continued.

On Friday, the list of presidential staffers at the Jubilee House was made public, showing 988 people working at the presidency.

The ‘elephant size’ presidential staffers, the biggest in nation’s history, has generated social media storm.

Many Ghanaians have slammed the president for the high numbers, questing his mantra to protect the public purse.
