Reduce the number of Presidential staffers – Bawa Mogtari counsels gov’t



An Aide to the former President of Ghana John Dramani Mahama, Joyce Bawa Mogtari believes that it’s time the government takes steps to cut down on costs.

She believes that among other things, it will be imperative for the government to reduce its overhead cost of running the jubilee house.

Joyce Bawa Mogtari is suggesting among other things the need to cut down on the number of Presidential staffers.

Apart from Presidential staffers, she counseled that it will be imperative that the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo cuts down on the size of his government.

In addition to cutting down on the size of his government, the President should also cut costs by avoiding his travels in luxurious jets that cost the country so much money.

Good morning Everyone!

Now that the government has decided to go to the IMF, this is my layman’s advice to @NAkufo Addo:

1. Cut down with immediate effect the size of government;

2. Cut down the number of presidential staffers;

3. The cost of the President’s luxurious travels alone wipes out the gains made by cutting ministerial travels, therefore stopping the President and Vice President from none essential travel and ensuring that important trips are via commercial flights and with a lean delegation;

4. Discontinue the family and friends procurements in the various government agencies, that are essentially just monies to cronies without any benefit to the agencies and the people of Ghana;

5. Remove taxes on Petroleum products to cushion citizens;

6. Suspend all concessional borrowing;

7. End sole sourcing;

8. Stop none essential procurement;

9. Recover with immediate effect all debts owed to government institutions;

10. Stop SOEs from borrowing.

Acta non-Verba!

Best wishes!
