My Ministers & Deputies Won’t Exceed 50 – Bawumia Pledges

Mahamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate, has pledged to keep the number of ministers and deputy ministers in his ministry to a maximum of fifty.

Dr. Bawumia made this decision because he thinks that fewer ministers are necessary for an effective system of government.

“The move towards the private sector provision of many public services would create fiscal space of at least 3% of GDP. This represents a major paradigm shift. Additionally, an efficient system of governance will require even fewer ministers. Therefore I would have no more than 50 ministers and deputy ministers,’’ he pledged.

In addition, the Ghanaian vice president who was presenting his vision gave assurance that his “government will reduce the fiscal burden on government by leveraging the private sector, following the successful roll-out and/or enhancement such as Free SHS, Free TVEY etc during the Nana Akufo-Addo government’s tenure”.

“With all these social safety nets in place, my government will now focus on jobs, and wealth creation by the private sector for all Ghanaians. My administration will incentivize the private sector to complement government in the provision of many infrastructure and other services to reduce government expenditure and improve maintenance,” he stated.

Dr. Bawumia, in the meantime, stressed the significance of strengthening the role of the private sector, as well as strengthening administrative and fiscal decentralization and improving the efficiency of institutions and systems. He thinks that taking these steps will increase productivity, cut down on waste, and guarantee value for money when it comes to purchasing.
