President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been asked to publicly concede that he deceived Ghanaians, when he promised that his government will protect the public purse.

Bernard Anim Piesie, member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) communication team said Nana Addo threw dust into their eyes of Ghanaians to win their sympathy and votes.

He said he must resign for failing to fulfill his campaign promises to Ghanaians.

The president on Friday released a list of 998 staff working at the seat of government. The number is a huge jump from what was used by his predecessor John Mahama, about 678 appointees.

Out of the total 110 ministers and deputies appointed by the president last year, only nine were mentioned in the new list of 998 staff.

Many Ghanaians continue to criticize the President for the appointments, which they say is putting unnecessary strain on the economy.

The NDC communicator speaking on the 998 presidential staffers on Accra-based Peace FM said Nana Addo must explain to Ghanaians reasons behind such huge number.
