Bishop Agyin Asare sends an unavoidable message to President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo

Presiding Bishop of Perez Chapel international in his sermon has cautioned the newly elected President, Nana Akufo-Addo to make amends in what went wrong in his first term as a President. The Bishop believes that a small country like Ghana should not be having more than 80 ministers as Nana Akufo-Addo in his first term appointed 125 ministers and deputies.

He then highlighted on 10 issues which the President in his second term should pay heed to. His main concern is that the number of ministers in the Akufo-Addo's administration must be reduced.

He highlighted, "A small country like Ghana should not be having more than 80 ministers when we always have a budget deficit and resort to foreign aids. It is just a waste of resources. The staff at the flagstaff house should also be reduced drastically."

He then listed what the 2nd administration of the Akufo-Addo administration should do and shouldn't do.

Here is what Bishop Charles Agyin Asare talked about in his sermon:

1. Protection of the public and civil servants in order for them to deliver a non-partisan civil and public service.

2. Complete uncompleted projects in order to aid our developmental objectives.

3. Abstain from tribal politics.

4. The government should avoid reckless spending in order for the country not to incur judgement debts and excessive borrowing should also be minimized.

5. The rule of law must apply to everyone. Politicians and the ordinary Ghanaians should be treated equally.

6. Politics full of insults should be stopped.

7. Be swift in your fight against Bribery and corruption.

8. Other pillars of society should be appreciated and given the needed attention.

9. Freedom of speech and tolerance of varied views in order to keep our long standing democracy running.

10. We need a strong and responsible opposition to give constructively criticize the government of the day.

What do you also think should be done right in the next Akufo-Addo's government?
