Information available to Peacefmonline.com indicates that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has put a stop to the long convoy that follows him anytime he goes on tours.

According to our sources, all Ministers, Deputy Ministers, Members of Parliament, Municipal and District Chief Executives who are mandated or wish to accompany the President on his 5-day tour of the Ashanti Region will have to make themselves comfortable in an STC bus provided by the state.

With this new directive, government appointees willing to follow the President on his 5 day tour to the Ashanti Region would not get the pleasure of using their V8 Landcruisers and Pickup trucks.

I commend the president for this step. It is an eye sore seeing the affluence shown by government appointees. I really commend him. We should applaud the president if he takes a good step. I have criticised the system if things go wrong and praise should be directed where it has to.

Free SHS is a mess and problematic,instead of you to cut down the size of your ministers,you are providing bus for ministers who still take home over 100,000 cedis in the name of salary.In fact Akuffo Addo knows nothing about the presidency,he is ***barred word***

How about the free soft furnished accomodation, gas and others. This man should not deceive Ghanaians. What percentage of the taxpayers money does this make. Address the free fall of the cedi and forget this cosmetic austerity measures. How many times in a year do you travel around and you s feel this is necessary. Short man with short thinking.
