Minority Members of Parliament have alleged that the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has sacked over 14,000 public servant workers.
The Minority said in the first 100 days of the president, workers from the national service, cocoa board, police training recruits, nurses, teachers and local government staff have been dismissed.
The deputy minority leader, Mr James Klutse Avedzi at a press conference on Tuesday April 18 said “It has been 100 days of hardships, deceit, wasteful expenditure on presidential swearing in ceremonies in Accra and Kyebi, wasteful expenditure on Ghana@60 celebrations, terrorism by Invincible Forces, Delta Forces and all the hidden partisan vigilante forces.”
“Yes there is no end in sight… in our part we shall offer the needed support and criticise constructively with the view to spearheading the ailing Akufo-Addo government in order that they do not roll back the clock of progress started by the NDC.”

Mr Avedzi said it has been 100 days of “unprecedented bribery and conflict of interest in high places.”
“Ghana cannot wait for four years of recklessness, violence, lawlessness, insecurity, incompetence, hardship and bribery in high places. Mr President, listen to the plea of most well-meaning Ghanaians and drastically prone down the size of your government now,” he added.
He also described Akufo-Addo’s government as wasteful for spending state funds on luxurious parties.
According to him, Nana Addo must disclose the amount spent on the lavish parties.
