If the calls made by a university lecturer is what President Akufo-Addo will go by, then it seems the future is not looking bright for the Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo and other top ministers of state.
Dr Benjamin Otchere-Ankrah, a Political Science lecturer with the Central University in Accra, has called on the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to reduce the size of his government by cutting down the number of his ministers from the current 123 to 80.
Speaking on Peace FM's Kokrokro monitored by Ghanaguardian.com, the lecturer named five (5) non-performing appointees the President should begin with, in his layoff exercise.
The first appointee Nana Addo should consider laying off according to the lecturer is Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Madam Gloria Akuffo.
Apart from the Attorney General portfolio, Dr Otchere-Ankrah said the assessment he has conducted pointed out that several other ministers did not make any serious contributions towards the Akufo-Addo led government since their appointments and therefore ought to be hauled as well.
He said the President should sack Ambrose Dery - Minister of Interior and MP for Nandom, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei - Minister for Monitoring and Evaluation, Joseph Kofi Adda - Minister of Aviation and Samuel Atta Akyea - Minister for Works and Housing.
"They are woefully incompetent." He fumed.
Dr Otchere also suggested that the President should consider laying off all the Deputy Regional Ministers since their duties could be added to that the Regional Ministers.
"Technically, the Regional Ministers themselves even don't do any work, so there shouldn't be any like Deputy Regional Minister, they only coordinate the activities if the various Assemblies, they don't do anything there." He explained.
