Yaw Osafo Marfo, the head of the Nana Akufo-Addo transition team has expressed dissatisfaction over some late recruitment into the various security agencies and other sectors by the outgoing government.

According to him, the move by the government to regularise the appointment of some individuals into the public service, following the defeat in the general elections is also worrying.

The former finance minister made this known while speaking to the media on Wednesday during the ongoing transition process in Accra.

He argued that the outgoing Chief of Staff Julius Debrah must step in and ensure that such engagements are stopped immediately.

The process to hand over notes from the Mahama government to the NPP administration is currently ongoing at the conference centre in Accra.
