President Nana Akufo-Addo has clarified the idea behind his decision to create six new ministerial portfolios under his administration.
Speaking at the third news conference at the Flagstaff House, the president addressed concerns that have been raised in the media about six new portfolios that have been announced.
“The six portfolios that are coming out as new portfolios will be working under the umbrella of the Office of the President.
They are not stand up ministries that are going to be [built]. They are all going to function as part of the Office of the President but the ministries involved would have their dedicated portfolios and you will find [their ] budget [under] the Office of the President.”
