110 Ministers Brouhaha: Numeric or Economic - Where Lies The Illegality?

Big number?
On what terms?
Numeric or Economic?

Inspite of my ignorance, I do understand that:
any action of government executed within the confines of our existing laws shall not be demonized or ridiculed, that shall be a mockery of our own sovereignty.

I also do understand, and believe you do too, that, our laws will not in the exercise of his prerogative, allow the president space for any act that would be inimical to the economy, certainly not in it's current state of fragility.

For me, unless the Constitution of Ghana has outlived its functionality, what is illegal are:

• Corruption;
• Stealing state funds;
• Ballooning government project costs;
• Allowing corrupt government officials to get away with tax payers money unpunished;
• Paying illegal judgement debts to party financiers and undeserving contractors;
• Imposing illicit levies on consumption (Eg, on petroleum products);
• Government manned create - loot - share organisations like SADA, GYEEDA, SUBAH, others not mentioned;
• Accepting bribe as upfront to government contracts, etc.

If this hollow case is not an attempt to neutralize the erstwhile Prof Mills - JDM led and JDM - Amissah Arthur headed corrupt administrations or a popularity contest, then be mindful that:

"Drastic Situations Call For Drastic Measures."

I spotted a caption in the media on the President's response to the criticisms, and I was like: "Nana, leave the barking dogs alone and stay focused - Mustapha Hamid and his lieutenants have great legal catapults, they'll do the stoning."

Energy and time should rather be spent on advancing for a fair inclusion demographically as the president's power decentralization process unfolds. (Eg. what's up for grabs in government for indigenes of Koforidua, Eastern Regional Capital, Mr. President?).

To those bent on playing mischief about this being the biggest government size in history, I agree.

But, for fairness and neutrality sake, let them also objectively speak to my self - framed topic:

"Government Size, National Debt Stock & Level Of Economic Wreck Inherited in Ghana's History."

If they did, they'd have realised that; the Nana Addo - Dr. Bawumia led government has innocently been passed on the largest national debt stock and economic mess ever in our history, with some huge debts not accounted for out of either malice or shame during the transition period until the current government assumed office - How sad!

The statistics are not far from fetch.

This unfounded and doom - mongering argument would have been more constructive and interesting at the evaluation phase.

Please save the castigation and chastising for the results evaluation stage, that makes more sense.

Has anyone discovered even a tittle of unconstitutionality in the president's appointments? Let them head to court, and I SHALL support wholeheartedly.

Till then: "The End Justifies The Means" they say.

How ignorant I am!

Indeed you are very ***barred word***
110 how many are from the Parliament and 84 how many were from the then parliament? In all competency is the answer, were the 84 able to deliver ' A BIG NO' are the 110 going to deliver ' LET'S WAIT AND SEE'.Ndc you are making too much noise out of nothing and that will be a failed campaign message for your struggling party which is yet to get a leader. GOD BLESS OUR HOMELAND GHANA AND MAKE IT GREAT AND STRONG. GOD BLESS THE NPP AND GOD DAMN THE NDC,ANTI- GHANA AND ENEMIES OF GHANA. WE SHALL OVERCOME IN GOD WE TRUST.

You know all these but you criticized them when they appointed 84 or so ministers. Since when did 110 become less than 84? Just accept the criticisms and stop the unnecessary justifications and understand that, if they are wrong today for calling 110 too large, then you were never right then when you(NPP) called 84 too large...deceivers i will call you (NPP).

NPP were in power under the 4th Republic and they clindestically led Ghana astray with IFC loan which later materialised as a hair dresser saloon in London as headquarters of the IFC and this has already passed through parliament before it was discovered. There are many more mischievous deals that it would possible to list so stop tickling yourself that you have the answers to economic woes.
