Nana Addo’s 110 ministers will end corruption – Abronye DC
Brong Ahafo Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic
Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, also known as ‘Abronye
DC’ has slammed top National Democratic Congress
(NDC) activists who are insisting President Nana
Akufo-Addo’s 110 ministers seems absurd in
comparison with the number of ministers of former
heads of states.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Wednesday
presented to Parliament 50 deputies ministers and
four others to serve as Ministers of State at the
presidency and ministries, bringing his total
number of ministers to 110.

The appointments have been described as the
highest in the country’s history and been followed
by widespread criticism from the public.

But Kwame Baffoe in an interview with an Accra
based Neat FM said the motive behind the ‘large
appointees’ are to check embezzlement of funds to
protect the public purse from corruption unlike
the previous NDC government.

“The public procurement embezzlement is to be
checked. Nana Akufo-Addo wants to protect the
public purse. Nana Addo has come to stop
corruption…” he maintained.

He maintained that, President Akufo-Addo wants to
have eyes at all angles to manage monetary issues
hence the will to end corruption in order to
improve the standard of living of the people
unlike the NDC government who wants the people to
suffer whiles they make merry over taxes.

“He wants to have eyes at all angles deemed to be
corrupt to be corrected by his government. They
[NDC] believe Ghanaians should suffer so they
gain. But Nana Addo doesn’t want that. This NPP
government is not coming to spend from the coffers
of the people but to end corruption…” he noted.

Nevertheless, the NPP Youth Organizer confirmed
that, there is no way the reduction of salaries of
the ministers will erupt corruption since the NPP
party are in to work for the people.

“All the ministers’ salaries will be reduced. Some
said it will bring corruption. All those appointed
are solid members in the party and won’t worry
about money but work hard for the nation…” he
