The President of the republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, has been severely criticized for not reshuffling and also surrounding himself with his family and friends that are holder major offices in government
Though, many argue that they are well qualified to hold such office and secondly the President want people he can trust around him. A typical example is the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.
Many has called for reshuffling or sack of some Articles 71 Office Holders but the President is still holding on to him.
The revelation of the huge Ex Gratia received by Article 71 Office Holders has questioned the idea of the President for not changing them. Many Ghanaians are of the view that he is keeping them because of the huge financial benefits that comes with the job.
For instance, the Executive Arm of government of which both the President and the Finance Minister falls are the highest paid among others. while the President received GHC659,392.00 as Ex Gratia, the Finance Minister received about FHC464,032.00 as Ex Gratia.
The arguments keep getting better with this revelations of why people want to hang unto power for a long time without change.
