Economic Crisis: Sack irrelevant ‘plantain selling’ Deputy Ministers — Dr. Fokuo Kwantung tells Akufo-Addo

According to him, government is spending huge sums of monies on some deputy ministers who
are doing virtually nothing to help reverse the country’s economic downturn.
Citing an example, Dr Forkuo said he sees no reason why President Akufo-Addo will keep
deputy ministers at the Food and Agriculture Ministry who are buying and selling plantains just
like ordinary market women.
The Senior Lecturer believes non-performance on the part of some of the appointees and
ministers serving under the have rendered them redundant.
Speaking on the Kumasi-based OTEC 102.9 FM’s breakfast show “Nyansapo”, on Wednesday
December 6, 2022, Dr Forkuo said it was highly unnecessary for government to keep many ministers at the time the country is dealing with debt restructuring and haircuts on bonds.
