Asawase MP Muntaka Mubarak has asked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to collapse the Ministry of Special Development Initiatives.
The Minority Chief Whip said that ministry and a few others, including the Monitoring and Evaluation Ministry, are needlessly draining the state coffers and must be scrapped immediately.
The lawmaker told Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on the Ghana Yensom show on Accra100.5FM on Thursday, 4 June 2020 that although the individuals heading those ministries are good in their fields, their offices serve no purpose.
“Now, you have the Ministry of Special Development doing ambulances when the Ministry of Health is there. They are doing furniture for schools when the Ministry of Education is there. This is a very useless ministry that should be scrapped,” he said.
He added: “Another one is the Ministry of Monitoring and Evaluation. That is also a useless ministry. I have called on the president to scrap these ministries.”
