The Centre for Democratic Governance (CDD) is questioning president Nana Akufo-Addo's large sized government, saying there is no guarantee they will be efficient.

“There is no doubt that there was some basis in which the president considered making those appointments, but it is also important to note that, there is no evidence to suggest that by appointing such large numbers, they are able to solve the problems that the president is talking about,” the Head of Research and Programs at the CDD, Dr. Franklin Oduro, told Citi FM.

He said the pros and cons of the president's appointment on the national purse, on the bureaucracy and inefficiencies has not been thought through properly.

“We haven’t thought about the potential of inefficiencies, improper coordination and the impact that it might have on the bureaucracy which is already weak, and also the cost that it would add to the national purse. In all of this, we have to weigh the pros and cons,” he said.

He further pointed out potential duplication of duties, warning that there could be potential for conflict and improper coordination.

“There are also concerns, in our view, with duplication in terms of some of those appointments, the potential for conflict and improper coordination and also the effect it might have on the bureaucracy and even on parliament,” Dr. Oduro said.
