National organizer of the National Democratic Congress, Kofi Adams, has described the first 100 days of Akufo-Addo as a period of misplaced priorities.
According to him, the country can only continue in growth from here president left off if Akufo-Addo change his approach to issues.
“The Akufo-Addo government has been a disaster; if this country must grow and continue the trajectory the NDC left, then President Akufo-Addo must change gear, change ways and ask himself about the effects of the foundation he is laying,” he said on 3FM.
He criticised the New Patriotic Party [NPP] of setting double standards as the complained of the number of ministers under president Mahama but have now appointed 110.
“You tell us that 84 ministers and deputies (in the previous administration) was too much a number but you have a hundred and ten of them.
“The government left you an almost completed international airport (in the capital), an upgraded airport in the Ashanti Region; efficient harbour and railway systems. Despite these, you claim a single ministry of Transport which had a minister and must have ministers and deputies for aviation, Harbours, rail, and road transportation” that’s unbelievable” he added.
He further argued the current government has misplaced priorities and questioned the justification for what he described as needless appointees.
“In the security sector, there are so many persons; ministers for interior, defense, and national security; national security coordinator and advisor with their numerous deputies.
There is also the IGP, Chief of Defense Staff yet they can’t even contain the Delta Force,” he claimed.
According to Mr Adams, experts estimate an average of GHC100 to cater for a minister monthly therefore “three months of a minister’s salary can build a dormitory for a secondary school”
