President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has responded to the public brouhaha that has greeted his appointment of 110 ministers to help him govern the state.

In an interview with the Daily Graphic and Ghana Television (GTV) at the Flagstaff House, President Akufo-Addo said "These are the background and circumstances that were facing my government and the people of Ghana, hence they need a new paradigm shift to solve the problems.
