The Founder and leader of Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Percival Kofi Akpalu has revealed that he will abolish the appointment of Regional Ministers when he becomes President of the Republic of Ghana in 2025.
According to him, he does not see the sense in appointing Regional Ministers whiles District Chief Executives(DCE) and Mayors are appointed to run the day-to-day activities for the region.
He reiterated that the numerous ministers and ministries under the ruling NPP government are excessive and duplicate of roles.
“When I am voted as President, I will make sure I abolish the appointment of Regional Ministers because it doesn’t make sense because you have District Chief Executives(DCE) and Mayors who are already discharging the duties in the region, this is duplication of roles.
He said, “Ghana does not need regional ministers to aid government business because Ghana is a unitary state not federal so the MMDCEs can take care of the regions with the assistance of regional coordinators to channel information to the government through the local government ministry.”
Mr.Kofi Akpalu is confident that the Ghanaian youth yearn for a radical change.
“They seek a new direction and that is what the LPG is bringing to them. We are committed and very serious and promise to not disappoint any Ghanaian.”
