Mr. Kwabena Adjei Agyepong noted the use of two deputies Ministers by the ruling NPP administration wasn't needed and that they can survive with just one deputy. He further argued that even the whole Presidency has just one Vice. He therefore questioned why the Minister's have two deputies. According to him, the huge deputies Ministers is making the cost of running the government so expensive.
Mr Kwabena Agyapong stated that " I think every Minister should have one deputy. The President has one deputy who is his Vice. Why should the Minister have three? . . . it is making the cost of running government too expensive."
