Team Mills Not so “lean” after all

Posted by Business in Ghana on March 5, 2009

President Mills has pulled a fast one on Ghanaians. In his sessional address to parliament, he proudly proclaimed that he has so far succeeded in helping government shed off some excess ‘fat’. “We have already delivered on our promise to establish a lean but effective government by realigning and reducing the number of Ministries,” he proclaimed.  At that time he had appointed just about 36 ministers and that statement made me feel that he was only going to appoint just a few more so that the list might not go beyond 50.  Alas! Just a few days after delivering the address, the president issued a new list – mostly of deputy ministers – which has significantly increased the size of his governing team to near ‘Kufuorific’ proportions. There is a reduction alright but the government is still ‘obese’. It’s not healthy.
