IMF is worried about salaries of Akufo-Addo's appointees – Anyidoho
Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress [NDC], Koku Anyidoho says the Nana Addo-led administration is spending more than what it promised Ghanaians.
According to him, government's excessive spending on its copious appointees has raised some questions in his party as well as with the International Monetary Fund [IMF].
He claims to have seen documents from the IMF expressing worry over how government is spending monies on some unknown appointees.
“IMF has said the salary burden is becoming too much at the top. This government is creating jobs for people with numerous assistants to just one person at the top," he said.
“At the presidency, we have the Secretary to the President, and the Secretary to the Secretary of the President, and Assistant Secretary to the Secretary of the President, then Deputy Assistant Secretary to the Secretary to the Chief Secretary of the President. What kind of life is that? He questioned in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.
