The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has released a list that shows what he describes as ‘bizarre’ portfolios that are at the seat of government.
According to the MP, who has become very notorious for revealing details about the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as well as some state institutions, the list of 20 portfolios are weird.
In a post shared on his social media handles on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, the MP stated that “President Akufo-Addo has created quite some bizarre portfolios at the Presidency; considering Ghana’s current economic woes, should he be keeping these strange political appointments?”
He also indicated that these portfolios are taken from a recent presidential list submitted to parliament by the presidency.
The MP wants the president to reduce these portfolios so that it is promptly able to deal with its agenda of salvaging the economy from the current challenges it is facing.
“Isn’t it time for the president to thank them for their ‘great transformative services’ and drastically downsize so as to begin salvaging this junk economy?” he added.
