The next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government would run a lean government with significantly fewer ministers than Ghana has ever seen, according to former president John Dramani Mahama.

Mr. Mahama made this statement after refuting allegations that he received GHS14 million in ex-gratia in 2013.

Mr. Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as Abronye DC, a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), made the accusation.

President Akufo-Addo has ignored many requests to scale back his administration.

After the appointment of ministers to the six recently constituted regions in February 2019, the number of ministers working for the Nana Akufo-Addo cabinet increased from 110 to 123.

There can be no basis for some of the ministerial posts formed by this administration, Mr. Mahama has previously stated.

The position of Senior Minister, Minister of State in the Vice-Office, President’s Minister of State in the Office of the Senior Minister, Ministers for Procurement, Monitoring and Evaluation; Business Development and Special Initiatives, among others, are some ministries that have drawn attention.
