This list has caused an uproar among some section of the populace with people describing it as 'job for the boys'.

In a statement signed by Efua Idan Atadja, Communications Officer for CDD on the list, it said: "Not only does this tend to undermine efficiency and discipline in the running of the Presidency, it also undermines the credibility of the President’s pledge to protect the public purse by ensuring judicious use of scarce state resources."
