"The President's reaction to the massive criticisms over his appointments of ministers scores him another marks.
We can agree or disagree, but at least he DIDN'T tell us that we were incapable of criticizing him because we have never been Presidents before."
We must support the President. He is genuine and not reckless at all. He says that 70% of his Ministers are MPs, which is equal to 77, out of the 110 Appointees. Therefore only 33 People have actually been appointed outside Parliament. It's not Job for the boys but an empowerment of the elected Representatives of the people in the day to day running of the NPP government. I am chuffed to bits. So many good and intelligent MPs will become Ministers and directly supervise the operations of the government machinery, and then defend their actions in Parliament. This is unprecedented! It's a win-win situation. All hands on deck. Ghana must do better than the past! God bless President Nana Akuffo Addo.
