The Minister of Information, Mustapha Hamid, has said that President Nana Addo has appointed some 110 Ministers including deputies to serve in his government because the economy the NPP inherited is weak and “requires a competent army” of people to help revive it.

At a press conference held at the Information Ministry in Accra Hamid said President Akufo-Addo took into consideration the competence of all his appointed officials.

“In putting together this government, he [President] has been guided by the competencies and experiences of the people and the legal requirements for making such appointments.”

“Akufo Addo government has inherited a country whose economy is if you want at its weakest …requires a strong army that will resolve, confront these challenges and resolve them in the rapid manner that we[Ghanaians] require in order to put our country back on the path of progress and development” “If we keep doing business as usual, we cannot transform the country in the manner that we envisage. This number of Ministers that the President has presented to Parliament brings his entire government to 110 Ministers of State and deputies who would assist him deliver on the ambitious programme of national transformation and development which the people of Ghana have charged him to implement,” he added.

He also explained that President Nana Addo was guided by Article 78 (2) of the constitution in making his appointments.
