Charles Wereko-Brobby: Mahama’s Duplicate Appoinments Could Cost Ghana Financially.
A stalwart of the New Patriotic Party, Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby has described as worrying President Mahama’s ministerial appointments.
According to him, the appointments are duplicative in nature and could cost the country financially.
President Mahama in his latest ministerial appointments assigned special duties to some ministers of state, he nominated Alhaji Mustapha Ahmed, Minister of State at the Presidency in charge of Development Authorities in the Office of the President; Mr. Alhassan Azong, Minister of State at the Presidency in charge of Public Sector Reform; Mr. Rashid Pelpuo, Minister of State at the Presidency in charge of Public-Private Partnerships and Fifi Kwetey, Minister of State at the Presidency in charge of Financial and Allied institutions in the Office of the President.
But speaking on Accra based Joy FM Dr. Wereko Brobbey said President Mahama’s appointments could create conflict among the entire ministerial set up.
He said the President must be definite with the exact roles his ministers will be playing at the presidency.
“I wish our people had gone to Parliament and asked, what is it that the ministers are going to do at the presidency that sector ministers in well established ministries cannot do?’ he asked.
Dr. Wereko Brobbey added that “we don’t need our country’s money to be wasted with ministers at the Presidency and sector ministers and others”.
