The Majority Leader of Ghana’s Parliament, Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has finally replied to critics about his assertion that governments in Ghana shouldn't appoint more than 19 ministers of state. After the Majority Leader made that comment, critics called him a hypocrite and asked why he hasn't told Akufo-Addo to do so all this while.
Meanwhile, speaking to journalists at the New Patriotic Party’s Delegates Conference, Majority Leader revealed that the critics have not been listening to him because he has been of this view for a very long time. He added that he wasn't talking about just the Akufo-Addo government but rather governments since 1992.
“ Those saying I should have said this earlier haven't been listening to me. It's been my advocacy for the past 10 years. Those who think I just woke one and have this dream have certainly not been following me. It is constitutional, it has nothing to do with the current administration or individual administrations. The point of the matter is since Rawlings’ none of the Presidents in the country have obeyed 19 ministers of state. So I was addressing the governance architecture of our country.” Osei Kyei Mensah boldly revealed this to the media.
