I’ll Run a Lean Government of 60 Ministers – Mahama

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has reiterated his commitment to drastically reduce the size of government if he becomes president.

He said that was because the Akufo-Addo government had sufficiently proven to Ghanaians that with over 120 ministers and deputy ministers, all they could offer was to ruin the economy.

“I will run a lean, highly effective, and efficient government of no more than 60 (sixty) ministers and deputy ministers,” Mr Mahama told journalists in Accra on Sunday.

He said his promise to run a lean government was proof of his genuine commitment to curbing government expenditure.

“My leaner government will be the cleanest government Ghana has ever experienced. It will serve Ghanaians far better and set higher standards for future governments. What we have now can never be and should never be a yardstick,” he stated.

He said his goal was to launch a renewed fight against corruption.

“I will keep my appointees in check, and Ghanaians can be assured that drastic steps will be taken to punish the corrupt officials and their accomplices in this present government. No actor in this NPP corruption enterprise will be spared. We will also take action to repossess what has been unlawfully stolen from the Ghanaian people,” he said
