Top performing appointees of Nana Addo Mahama should maintain if he wins power in 2024(opinion)

The overriding purpose of a government is to ensure the livelihood of the citizenry is bettered. And in a democracy where a multi-party system is one of the guiding principles, power is inevitably handled from one party to another. Given the term of office for a president in Ghana, it is far-fetched that a government completes all projects it commenced before leaving power. Consequently, the government is a continuation. On this note, a government owes it a duty to finish as many as possible projects initiated by the predecessor. Besides the projects, there are some appointees whose performance is laudable who must be maintained to continue the duties they are discharging even if a new government comes to power. 

The nation goes to the polls in 2024, and there are two likely outcomes; the NPP retains power or the NDC comes back. If the NDC wins, John Dramani Mahama who looks on paper as the one to lead them to the polls should maintain these Nana Addo appointees who have been commended by Ghanaians;

1. The acting Inspector General of Police. Dampare has changed the face of the Ghana Police Service since his appointment. He has helped build the confidence the public has in the service's ability to combat crime and ensure law and order.

2. The Greater Accra Regional Minister. Mr. Henry Quartey has won hearts with the discharge of his duties. He has been able to boldly decongest the city of Accra to allow free movement of people within the city. Mr. Henry Quartey has instilled discipline in all functionaries in the capital.

3. The Minister of Finance. Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta has been able to regulate the public purse of the country with great efficiency. In a difficult time like during the coronavirus pandemic, it takes a well-experienced financial person to manipulate the fiscal policy of the country to prevent the economy from going into recession.

For the betterment of the country, the winner takes all attitude should be avoided to give the chance to people who can perform irrespective of their political affiliation.
