110 ministers: It doesn’t make sense – IMANI

The founding president of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, has fired salvos at President Akufo-Addo over the size of his government.

Mr. Cudjoe in an interview on the Morning Starr Thursday, did not mince words, arguing Akufo-Addo’s decision to appoint 110 ministers and deputies “doesn’t make sense.”

He stressed the “lawful plunder” will have adverse effect on the public purse. “What is this?” a bewildered Cudjoe quipped.

“Other African countries are doing the same and I thought we were making progress… I’m quite disappointed,” the IMANI Africa boss asserted.

Describing the development as “a very stubborn and disrespectful way of handling national affairs,” Mr. Cudjoe predicted it will lead to “cronyism.”
“Cronyism leads to corruption. If the money doesn’t belong to you, you don’t see the need to be prudent.”

Although Nana Akufo-Addo’s Information Minister Mustapha Hamid had defended his boss’ decision, saying “size doesn’t matter”, Mr. Cudjoe warned that the president has paved the way for “competition for theft and ultimate waste if not corruption.”

“It doesn’t make sense because it is lawful plunder… This isn’t smart governance. It is a complete misunderstanding of what our structures stand for,” Mr. Cudjoe opined.
