President Akufo-Addo has appointed 110 Ministers to serve under his administration. This decision generated some sort of criticism from a section of Ghanaians arguing that it will have an effect on the public purse.

However, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah thinks otherwise. He said, "Should most of our ministers have been new in government without being MPs, then I would agree we are overspending on them as ministers. These ministers we are talking about, most of them are already MPs".

“Even though some persons may say the government is spending a huge amount of money on its 110 ministers, but that is not it. Myself I serve as an MP and the same as a minister, however, I have never received any salary for the position as a minister. I do not take anything like house, cars, and others”, he explained.
